(br) wrote: During his holidays on the countryside, David Rousseau (Jean-Paul Rouve), an author of crime novels, investigates the death of a beautiful young woman named Candice Lecoeur (Sophie Quinton). He discovers that Candice had modeled her life and career after Marilyn Monroe. Rousseau refuses to believe she has committed suicide. Teaming up with a local policeman in his search for the truth, he will be confronted with many difficulties and going beyond what some people want to keep a secret forever...This melancholic "Fargo" like thriller comedy puts a focus on the bitterness and sadness Marilyn Monroe was living through during her lifetime channeled via the fame thirsty character Candice and her similar demise. The mix between comedy and bleak drama is not working as the film doesnt know what it wants to be. "Nobody Else But You" is stale, clichd, slow, boring and not that funny. Rather more tragic and unsatisfying. You can easily pass on this one.
