Directed by Gérald Hustache-Mathieu
US release date: May 11, 2012

The neo-noir French thriller Nobody Else But You is a risqué murder mystery with a comedic sensibility that recalls Fargo and Twin Peaks.

Nuanced performances by acclaimed French actors Jean-Paul Rouve and Sophie Quinton enrich the offbeat story of a best-selling crime writer and a dead beauty Queen who channels Marilyn Monroe, played out among the stylishly shot backdrop of Eastern France’s gorgeous winter landscapes.

First Run Features will open Nobody Else But You on May 11, 2012 at New York’s Cinema Village.

David Rousseau (Rouve) is a bestselling crime novelist from Paris with writer’s block. Candice Lecouer (Quinton) is a troubled beauty and regional celebrity made famous by the "Belle de Jura" cheese company’s ad campaigns. Candice also is convinced she is the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. The two will come togther in the coldest village in France - when Rousseve witnesses Candice’s lifeless body being removed from a wintry grave. Reality turns out to be stranger than fiction as Rousseau uncovers the truth about Candice’s past…and her possible murder.

"A hint of Twin Peaks and a large helping of the Coen Brothers in this offbeat, cleverly crafted French thriller…perhaps the closest thing to Fargo to come along in a long while." - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
