Tell No One- the French movie based on the Harlen Coben book

(courtesy of Birdbath) Enjoy this month in France!

Tell No One was my first Harlen Coben book and after I devoured it I went out and read everything he’d written.  As much as I love some of his others, this still remains my favorite and I recommend it often.  I was thrilled to learn that it had been made into a movie, even willing to embrace the fact that it would be a French movie with subtitles.  Subtitles and I have a rocky relationship.  I saw it at the theater when it came out and watched it again this week with my mom.  I liked it better the second time because I followed all the characters a little better.

How does a New York story transfer to Paris?  Very well.  It is different, but the idea is the same.  A doctor is contacted by his dead wife eight years after her murder, only the police and paid killers are after him too.  I thought this fast paced movie was great.  For all Harlan Coben fans, he has a cameo, pay attention or you’ll miss it.

France 052This has nothing to do with the movie but I loved this window we found in Bordeaux country.

  1. Interesting that they made a French movie out of it. I don’t do well with subtitles either.

    • I don’t love subtitles, but this one wasn’t too confusing.

  3. Awesome! I love subtitles for some reason. Makes the film more of an experience for me. I’ll have to check out both book and movie. Beautiful window shot, by the way!

  4. I did not know the book was made into a movie. Love COben’s books.

    • You’ll have to see it, just to see Harlan’s cameo if nothing else!

    • As I looked through the photos I had taken I realized that I had quite a few window shots. You’ll see more 🙂

  6. I’ve read many Coben books, but not this one. I have it, though. This post is encouraging to read it sooner rather than later.

    • Oh, I can’t wait to see what you think. I think it was his first big break into the mainstream.

  9. I like foreign films, but it’s a lot harder for me to knit and watch subtitles at the same time.
