Canet at Coben's height !
18 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I read the masterly novel "Tell no one" by Harlan Coben and the movie by Guillaume Canet didn't disappoint me. And I want to precise that I'm very critical with novel's adaptations when I've read the book.

At first, I was surprised that a novel as great as this one become a French movie and not a Hollywood production. But I was "disappointed in good" (déçu en bien), as we say in Switzerland.

Canet respected very well Coben's work and the cast is absolutely excellent ! François Cluzet (with a resemblance with Dustin Hoffman) is a perfect Dr Beck. Kristin Scott-Thomas, André Dussolier (can be a naughty character too), Jean Rochefort and the others are great as well.

Finally a really great movie - the best French movie I've seen, I think - as thrilling as the book ! "Ne le dis à personne" equals "Tell no one".

Notice that the man who follows Beck in the station is Harlan Coben himself.
