NOBODY ELSE BUT YOU

Director: Gérald Hustache-Mathieu

102 minutes • France • 2011


A playfully eccentric and highly enjoyable comic murder mystery, Nobody Else But You begins with crime writer David (Jean-Paul Rouve) returning home to collect an inheritance. Under pressure from his publishers to meet his deadline, but lacking inspiration, he is drawn into a real-life investigation when the body of local starlet Candice Lecoeur (Sophie Quinton) is found. Finding a verdict of suicide unacceptable, David interviews Candice’s friends and traces her life through her diaries, quickly coming to realise that Candice believed herself to be the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. The film cleverly riffs on the Marilyn mythology in building parallels between the two women, and incorporates witty references not just to her, but also to the staples of crime fiction and any number of other films.<
