While Nobody Else But You aspires to a kind of French Fargo, it forgets the primary qualities that made that film work.

It wants to put a spell on us-but what we get feels less like magic than a fistful of Ambien.

"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.

The actors are not especially charismatic, and the narrative, though well-plotted, lacks any sustained excitement.

You will watch this film with a baffled smirk on your face. At least I did.

"Nobody Else But You'' has a great deal going for it, not the least of which is Rouve, who takes the novelist's obsessiveness, depression and general boorishness and turns it all into the source of his appeal.

It's an enjoyable way to spend 100 or so minutes, but once it ends, it might make a disappearing act from memory.

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.

Easygoing French murder mystery casts a spell.
Mike Scott
August 10, 2012
An intriguingly original and attractively shot whodunit that blends a sense of Marilyn Monroe-infused sadness into the mix.

"Nobody Else but You" is a complicated movie, and it's also a thrilling one because it so clearly knows what it's doing.

A quirky murder mystery where the world's most famous blond gets resurrected in rural France.
Brent Simon
May 15, 2012
A stylishly shot film that's at once forlorn and hopeful, unfolding in a space that seems real and familiar, yet also a bit off-kilter and dreamlike. If it's a candle in the wind, it flickers some, but doesn't get blown out.

a modern day "Laura" with a Fargoesque setting, Agatha Christie like plotting and the reincarnation of a Hollywood icon.

[Sophie] Quinton is sexy, sad, happy and melancholy as she builds her sympathetic Candice to a fully dimensioned tragic figure.

Writer-director Gérald Hustache-Mathieu sustains a fresh voice influenced by the Coen brothers and the infernal snow of Fargo.

If "Nobody Else but You" is smart and entertaining, it is a little too clever for its own good.

A playful French meta-mystery that's occasionally too proud of its own cleverness.
