David Rousseau (Jean-Paul Rouve) is a successful mystery writer who’s come to the coldest place in France for the reading of his uncle’s will. The 400-mile drive seems at first to have been in vain as his only inheritance is a stuffed dog named Toby, but when a beautiful blonde is discovered dead in the snow, Rousseau finds a more compelling reason to stay in town. Candice Lecoeur (Sophie Quinton) was a local celebrity who dreamed of bigger things but found her greatest success as a frequently nude spokesmodel for a popular cheese company. Her death sparks Rousseau’s curiosity with the hope that it might also help him break through his writer’s block, and as he reads her journals the film flashes back to reveal a woman in flux. Lecoeur modeled the last few years of her life on an infamous blonde bombshell with whom she felt great affinity, and as Rousseau digs deeper he suspects her death may have followed suit. Nobody Else But You is an alternately fun, suspenseful and sad mystery, but it’s interested in more than simply who may or may not have had a hand in Lecoeur’s demise. It’s about the paths we choose and the ones life chooses for us. Who we are and who we want to be are rarely the same thing, and the divide between them is sometimes filled with regret, a loss of identity and naked firemen.
