Listen to the Story.

"Tell No One" is based on a book of the same title by American author Harlan Coben.

The film was shot in France, and it was a huge success there.

But it took a while to make into American theaters.

Distributors thought it was "too American" for a French art-house film.

But a small distribution company took a chance on it.

And the film has now grossed almost 3 million dollars here in the 6 weeks it's been out.

The success has, surprise, surprise, sparked talk of an American remake.

In the film, we meet pediatrician Alexandre Beck.

Beck's wife was thought to have been murdered 8 years before.

Until mysterious emails begin appearing in his inbox.

Beck had been suspected of killing his wife.

But after the mystery emails, he begins his own investigation into his wife's apparent murder, in parallel with the French police who have re-opened the case.

Guillaume Canet is the director of Tell No One and is on the film from France, Harlan Coben author of the book the movie's based on is in New York, it's good to have you two creators of this movie with us, thank you.
