Movie Info

Rousseau is a bestselling crime novelist from Paris, troubled by writer's block. Candice Lecoeur is a local beauty, gracing the famous "Belle de Jura" cheese packaging, who has gotten it into her head that she might well be the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. The two will meet in the coldest village in France, but only after Candice has been found dead. The case was closed before it even opened and the cause of death declared suicide by sleeping pills. Rousseau is the only one who doesn't buy it. Reality turns out to be stranger than fiction - and a source of inspiration - as Rousseau uncovers the truth about Candice's past and her untimely death. Boasting strong lead performances and gorgeous wintertime landscapes, this off-beat mystery breathes fresh life into the thriller genre. -- (C) First Run Features

Audience Reviews for Nobody Else But You

  • Feb 15, 2014
    When David Rousseau(Jean-Paul Rouve), a writer, travels several hundred kilometers to a small town for a wealthy relative's funeral, he is disappointed to learn that the only thing he will be inheriting is the family dog which is in fact quite dead and stuffed. What he does get is inspiration when the body of Candice Lecoeur(Sophie Quinton), a local cheese spokesmodel and weather person, is found in the snow, a presumed suicide. But Rousseau senses foul play, even though the authorities say otherwise. His investigations bring him to Dr. Juliette Geminy(Arsinee Khanjian), Candice's psychiatrist, who after some pressure reveals that Candice had dreams of being Marilyn Monroe in a previous life. With more than its share of homages and references to the past, "Nobody Else but You" is definitely a movie like they just don't make anymore, that of a shaggy detective in a beatup car running down a mystery in engagingly offbeat fashion. Castle notwithstanding, I usually don't like writers as protagonists but here it works well as I like Rousseau. Plus, the movie gets more sympathy for Marilyn Monroe than any more direct or saner approach would do, even if the movie spells things out a little too forcefully.(And it's a nice touch that somebody says that Candice reminds him of Ann Baxter.) But while the mystery's resolution is lacking, the movie does end on a perfectly bittersweet note.

    Interesting plot, some good ideas, and some good acting, but the whole thing ended up being less than the sum of its parts. With more skillful direction it could have been a good movie. Ultimately, I ended up not being drawn in completely. A decent attempt, though, I must say.

    In a snow-drenched town, mystery writer investigates the death of a woman whose life mirrors that of Marilyn Monroe. A mixture of Fargo and Twin Peaks, this film takes a long time to unfold; in fact there aren't any clues to the mystery until about forty minutes into the action. However, once the film picks up speed, it is quite compelling. Sophie Quinton plays Candice Lecoeur like the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe that the script calls for: she's troubled and lonely and without an independent identity, but her grace and charm make her eminently desirable. By the end of the film, the tragedy of a woman who gets filled up with desires other than her own rings poignantly. The film's character development of David Rousseau is abysmal. What is his damage? What are his motivations? What about Candice connects to him? These questions are essential, but the film remains silent. Overall, at the end of the film, I like it enough to try to forget the beginning.

    This is a damn good neo-noir flick that tells the very intriguing story of Candince, who believes herself to be the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe, and the strange circumstances surrounding her death, much like Marilyn's death as well. The film feels like an old-school noir film with a modern twist. The story progression and the mystery surrounding this death, the way the narration plays out, the way the film is shot. I like how the film chooses to parallel her life to Marilyn's and how that led to her, unfortunate, downfall. It is the story of the fall of a Hollywood starlet except it's set in France and on an considerably smaller scale. If there's a problem with the movie is that the reveal of what happened to Candice, compared to the rest of the story which is really well-written and suspenseful, felt a little flat. It's actually a really good ending if you take it out of context because the fact that so many people actually had a hand in her death was, legitimately, very surprising. But when taken as the reveal of this story that has been so expertly told and crafted, I just found it to feel a little flat. I have no idea why it felt like this, but it does. Another thing I did like was the fact that the film isn't entirely humorless. There are some very funny scenes in this flick and they were certainly not expected but more than welcome. I really enjoyed the acting as well, Jean-Paul Rouve does a good job at detective but the show belongs to Sophie Quinton. She is definitely excellent and does carry herself as Marilyn-esque. She's certainly not the most attractive woman in the world but she's very charming and sexy. Yes, you don't need to be attractive to be sexy...it's all about how you carry yourself. But I thought she was very good in her role. Definitely not a role that requires a lot of nuance, but a great performance nonetheless. Even if the ending felt a little flat to me, this is still a damn good neo-noir thriller with an intriguing murder mystery and some great performances. Another pleasant surprise.
