Nobody Else But You movie scene

Sophie Quinton channels Marilyn Monroe in Nobody Else But You.

The acclaimed 2011 French comedy crime-mystery film Nobody Else But You is directed and co-written by Gérald Hustache-Mathieu and stars perky blonde starlet Sophie Quinton (Who Killed Bambi?).

Rousseau (Jean-Paul Rouve) is a bestselling crime novelist from Paris, troubled by writer’s block. Candice Lecoeur (Quinton) is a local beauty—she graces 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.

The movie (entitled Poupoudidou in its native France) was well-received by the critics, with The Hollywood Reporter declaring the film has “a hint of Twin Peaks and a large helping of the Coen Brothers! This offbeat, cleverly crafted French thriller is perhaps the closest thing to Fargo to come along in a long while.”

There are no bonus features on the DVD of Nobody Else But You, which received a very limited release to theaters in the U.S. in May, 2012.
