Alex Beck (François Cluzet) is a doctor who has slowly been putting his life back together after his wife Margot was murdered by a serial killer. Eight years on, Alex is doing well enough until he finds himself implicated in the murder of two people, with plenty of evidence pointing to him as the killer even though he knows nothing of the crimes.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Canet has a good feeling for lowlife atmosphere and he works up a few fine Hitchcockian twirls."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Tell No One is a thoroughly absorbing whodunit with more twists and switchbacks than the Le Mans racecourse."
‑ Susan Walker, Toronto Star
"Until an exposition flood so mammoth it has cresting waves, "Tell No One" is as eloquent as it is intricate - a superior depiction of crime, corruption, shame and secrecy. A French-language "Fugitive" with wind-sprint intensity and immediacy."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Canet has covered his bases with enough swooping camerawork, narrative smoke-and-mirrors, and quick-sketched supporting characters for a dozen thrillers"
‑ Leo Goldsmith, indieWIRE
"Easily one of the best films of the year."
‑ Gabriel Shanks, Modern Fabulousity
"By and large, Tell No One is more interested in telling a knotty story than pondering its meaning, but in those rare deeper moments, Canet evokes how a tragedy can gather around a man and linger there, like a cloud of gnats."
‑ Noel Murray, AV Club
"A whodunit so nicely crafted that you're tempted to forgive the Byzantine plot -- hell, you're even tempted to pretend you actually understand its twisting obscurities."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"While it's hardly a great film, Tell No One is the rare convoluted thriller that actually makes you want to keep up with its far-fetched twists and turns."
‑ Jon Frosch, The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
"Tell No One has shades of Hitchcock's Vertigo -- and not to its detriment. [An] extremely gripping and fascinating suspense film."
‑ Craig Phillips, GreenCine
"An absorbing thriller, one that works its narrative complications over a genuinely moving emotional foundation and is spiked with just enough dark humor to keep it from becoming overly serious."
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"Although it might make your head spin, this case of Vertigo in cyberspace keeps us spellbound."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Tell No One is a French action thriller and murder mystery that doesn't cheat."
‑ Richard Nilsen, Arizona Republic
"This twisty yarn is meant to leave you as discombobulated as its hero, an innocent man on the run from cops, thugs and killers. Hitchcock would have liked seeing him squirm."
‑ Matt Soergel, Florida Times-Union
"Initially complex, the piece's grip loosens with the introduction of a transparent villain, but it remains an entertaining thriller bolstered by Cluzet's appropriately angst-driven performance."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"...the pleasures here are more visceral than cerebral or emotional. It's really more of a thrill ride than the sort of art-house talkie you might expect"
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
