Film Review: Nobody Else But You

Charles A. Smith

"Nobody Else But You" is a delightful and eccentric thriller with just the right hint of humor. An interesting murder mystery set in the town of Mouthe, France, the film captures the beauty of the region while providing intrigue and surprises galore. Filmed in French with English subtitles, the acting, scenery, and production are all top notch, and just when you think you've figured it all out, there's a new twist and the plot thickens.

"Nobody Else But You" is about a struggling writer trying to find inspiration, and find it he does, in a most unlikely and fascinating way while visiting an old childhood family vacation retreat. Curiosity gets the best of him  as he tries to determine if a death deemed a suicide was indeed that or if it was murder. Movie fans will be thoroughly satisfied with this well thought out and superbly acted film. Gerald Hustache-Mathieu's directing is exceptional, and many of the scenes are shot from angles that offer more to the naked eye than the norm. Viewers will find themselves guessing until the very last minute in this offbeat, but clever production. This one gets two thumbs up, and is a great date movie to boot.
