The best thing about Nobody Else But You is Jean-Paul Rouve's leathery face. He expertly plays author David Rousseau, who stumbles onto a peculiar crime while visiting a tiny town near the French-Swiss border while racking his brain for a new novel. A local celebrity named Candice Lacouer (Sophie Quinton) was found dead in the snow, apparently a suicide. But nobody is investigating her death because her body was found in a nonjurisdictional no man's land between the two countries. The weathered Rousseau sees not only a plot for his next book, but also a chance to solve a real crime for once. Nobody Else But You is definitely quirky. It has shades of the Coens and Twin Peaks, and thanks to Candice Lacouer acting as a rural French surrogate for Marilyn Monroe, maybe a little "Candle in the Wind" iconophilia, too.
