There is something classic about Tell No One. This smart and fast paced thriller from France recalls the Hitchcockian theme of the innocent man on the run. Alexandre is knocked unconscious while his wife is murdered by a wanted serial killer. 8 years later he receives a mysterious email which links him to real time footage of an unknown location where a woman who bares a striking resemblance to his wife is featured. This begins a desperate search for more answers into his wife's apparent murder... and the film then stampedes ahead fulfilling all of the various thriller genres. It's a detective story, a murder mystery and a chase film all at once. The pace moves perfectly and the movie features one of the best chase sequences I've seen in years... the freeway scene is incredible. The use of music is also really effective. Tell No One is by no means original but that is it's strength. It calls upon classic genre movies to tell its story. At different times I felt like I was watching a movie by William Friedkin and then John Frankenheimer. There's a few DePalma touches and of course a heavy Hitchcock influence. Its a smart film with credible twists and turns and a very satisfying conclusion. I'm surprise they American's haven't remade it!! I'm glad they haven't!
