Based on the book Tell No One (Ne le dis å personne) by American Crime Novelist Harlan Coben, the film was nominated for nine Cesars, the French equivalent of the Academy Awards®. It won four, for Director Guillaume Canet, Best Actor François Cluzet, and for its editing and original music. Cluzet plays Alexandre Beck, a pediatrician who was a suspect in the death of his wife, Margot (Josée-Croze), a murder eventually pinned on a serial killer. But eight years later, two bodies are found near the spot where Margot's corpse was discovered, and the police reopen her case—with Alexandre again becoming a suspect. Adding to Alexandre's emotional and psychological turmoil is the recent arrival of a mysterious e-mail that seems to prove that Margot is still alive and includes the cryptic message "Tell No One."

Special features include the behind-the-scenes featurette Tell No One The B-Side (SD 55:48), deleted scenes (SD 34:05), and outtakes (SD 05:58).
The 2.35:1 1080p VC-1 picture quality is generally good but not outstanding. Fleshtones are naturally rendered, as is the color palette. The picture presents a natural realism throughout. Blacks are deep and shadow delineation is good. While not reference quality, overall, this is a satisfying picture. (Gary Reber)
The Dolby® Digital 5.1-channel French soundtrack is excessively monaural except for the music score and very low-level ambient sound effects in the front channels, and in one scene in a park, with forward-sounding atmospheric sound effects. Surround envelopment is limited to the music, which is loud and aggressive, but well recorded, and enhanced with low-level LFE .1 bass response. Overall, this is an undistinguished soundtrack produced almost entirely with production sound. The ending scenes are the most exciting but still without effective surround envelopment. (Gary Reber)
