Did You Know?


Originally, author Harlan Coben had optioned off his novel to Hollywood, with director Michael Apted attached. During this time, director Guillaume Canet, who had loved the novel, had been calling up Coben with his take on the novel. Coben was immediately impressed with Canet's passion for the story, and his vision, stating that Canet understood that the novel was a love story first, and a thriller second, which Hollywood never got. When the option with Hollywood fell through, Coben contacted Canet and decided to give him a chance. See more »


Bruno's black SUV has German license plates. The front plate shows the characters "KLE C 350" ("KLE" stands for the town of Kleve), the rear plate is incorrectly "350 KLE C". German license plates always begin with one to three letters which indicate the county where the car is registered, followed by one or two characters and one to four numbers at the end. German plates never begin with numbers. See more »

Canet at Coben's height !
18 November 2006 | by (Lutry, Switzerland) – 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


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