Tell No One is a stylish french thriller that loops back on itself like a film noir. Some of the scenes, especially of a childhood tree surrounded by bushes of flowers, were beautiful and well crafted. The story, while layered, did not drag down the movie nor was it hard to follow. It was engaging, leading me one to the "why" is this happening. The acting looked competent to me, but it was subtitled, so I have to admit I loose some of the nuances. Plus it is great to see a french thug and a lesbian lawyer getting all power-player for the defense.
