News & Interviews for Nobody Else But You
Critic Reviews for Nobody Else But You
This one doesn't go on the list of great recent European thrillers, but it's engrossing, and in the character of Martine/Candice, it touches real poignancy.
It's an enjoyable way to spend 100 or so minutes, but once it ends, it might make a disappearing act from memory.
"Nobody Else But You" takes a novel concept and a willing leading lady and squanders both through drab, lifeless storytelling.
The enduring mythology of Monroe enters the story as a mildly engaging echo and turns into an all-consuming avalanche, leaving out in the cold much of what feels fresh and appealing about the film.
A playful French meta-mystery that's occasionally too proud of its own cleverness.
Audience Reviews for Nobody Else But You
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.
In a snowbound French town, a crime novelist investigates the death of a local celebrity who beleived hereself to be the reincarntaion of Marilyn Monroe. Nods to "Twin Peaks" and a soundtrack full of icy renditions of 60s hits add ot the appeal of this cool, stylish and strange mystery.
