Due to heavy workload, I only managed to see one film this week:
Ne le dis à personne (Guillaume Canet, 2006), a tense, moody thriller about a doctor whose wife seemingly died years ago, only now for him to be contacted by her. Based on the Harlan Coben novel, François Cluzet stars as the put-upon grieving husband who finds that the more he digs, the murkier he finds his surroundings. Despite strong performances and an urgent pace, I wasn't terribly bowled over by this film. The twist was shocking enough, but the characters were too blandly developed and thinly sketched for me to care.
