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.
"A hint of Twin Peaks and a large helping of the Coen Brothers in this offbeat, cleverly crafted
First Run Features will open Nobody Else But You on May 11, 2012 at New York's Cinema Village, as well as in Seattle, to be followed by openings in several other cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles and Boston (June 8), Santa Fe (June 22), San Francisco/Berkeley (July 6), Washington DC (August 3), Philadelphia (August 10) and Minneapolis (August 24).
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.
Filmmaker Gérald Hustache-Mathieu was born in 1968 in Grenoble, France. His directorial debut, the award winning short film Peau de vache ("Cowhide"), played nearly 50 film festivals and was nominated for the 2002 San Francisco Golden Gate Award and the 2001 European Film Award. It won the 2003 César Award for Best Short Film. His second short, La chatte andalouse, was nominated for a César in 2004. Hustache-Mathieu's first feature length film, Avril ("April in Love"), was released in France in 2006. Nobody Else But You ("Poupoupidou") is the director's fourth film, and his fourth to star his favorite actress, Sophie Quinton. The film received a Gold Hugo nomination for Best Feature at the 2011 Chicago International Film Festival.
French thriller...perhaps the closest thing to Fargo to come along in a long while."
- Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
"A neo-noir thriller that combines mystery, noir, sex and more than a little French eccentricity
and joie de vivre. Overall, the film is a strange delight, with a great soundtrack to match."
- Shelagh Rowan-Legg, Twitch
"Subversive with an offbeat sense of humor. A Gallic twist on a Coen brothers film."
- Boyd van Hoeij, Variety
"Risqué, tart, quirky comedy. There's much to enjoy in this stylishly shot movie."
- Susannah Straughan, Sound on Sight
"Delightfully frothy and darkly humorous. Combines the legacy of Marilyn Monroe and pulp crime fiction to deliver a playful, quirky comedy." - Sara Hemrajani, The Film Pilgrim
"Conjures a distinct Lynchian vibe...deceptively clever!" - David O'Connell, 20/20 Filmsight
"One of the most purely enjoyable films of recent years... Raymond Chandler done with the spirit of Chaplin. Perfectly balancing sex appeal, humour and emotional depth, Sophie Quinton proves herself as a performer
of considerable skill and range." - Michael Ewins, FlickFeast
