Consensus: An intense, well-crafted thriller, Tell No One is equal parts heart-pounding and heart-wrenching.

Leo Goldsmith

Canet has covered his bases with enough swooping camerawork, narrative smoke-and-mirrors, and quick-sketched supporting characters for a dozen thrillers

Although it might make your head spin, this case of Vertigo in cyberspace keeps us spellbound.

Tell No One doesn't just keep you guessing; it keeps you on edge from start to finish.

Canet has a good feeling for lowlife atmosphere and he works up a few fine Hitchcockian twirls.

Tell No One is a thoroughly absorbing whodunit with more twists and switchbacks than the Le Mans racecourse.

Nick Rogers

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.

AV Club

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.

Rick Groen
Globe and Mail

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.

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.

Sometimes, Ne le Dis à Personne should have chosen to go for the drama instead of so much thriller, or the opposite. But it had to chose and it remained uneven… More

A captivating story, poorly told. The way the movie doles out its plot gradually over its two hour running time suggests a more elegant conclusion, but alas,… More
