Exclusive: Little White Lies Poster
Marion Cotillard heads to the beach

Guillaume 'Tell No One' Canet's next movie, relationship drama Little White Lies, had its origins in the personal crisis endured by the director in the wake of that breathless thriller. It's safe to expect less of the breakneck foot-chases, then, and more of the contemplative, 'what's-it-all-about' stuff. The film's new quad bears that out, with an ensemble cast gathered by the seaside to offload a lifetime of teensy, and not so teensy, dishonesties.

Considering his CV boasts movies with titles like Whatever You Say, Tell No One and Little White Lies, you might think that Canet has have one or two trust issues, but the idea for this third feature came to him while he was recovering from a heavy bout of septicemia and depression.

Yes, it's a friends movie but in Canet's capable hands it should be closer in quality to The Big Chill - a film he cites as a direct influence - than recent, hamfisted beachside relationship movies (cough Couples Retreat cough).

It's got a decent looking cast, too. Tell No One's François Cluzet and Gilles Lellouche are joined by Canet's partner, the ever excellent Marion Cotillard. It'll be in a cinema near you on April 15.
