Ne Le Dis A Personne is a French movie based on an American suspense novel. It will get an American remake (directed by Ben Affleck), but that can’t possibly be better than this version. It’s actually a really good movie, but I won’t give it more than two and a half stars. I was incredibly annoyed by the use of popular songs during inappropriate moments and I thought the story was incredibly far-fetched and unbelievable. The reason why I still think it’s a good movie is the fact that, regardless of the issues mentioned, it had my attention until the end! The story is filled with plot twists, some more predictable than others, but it keeps the movie going. And the acting is good. The directing (apart from the soundtrack selection) is also great! Canet is a much better director than actor. (in that sense, Affleck, is the right man for this job) There are some really cool shots in the movie.

The only thing you need to know about the story is this: a doctor receives an email from his deceased wife, eight years after she was brutally murdered and found near the lake where both of them were taking a holiday.

the US version of the trailer sucks:
