Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This one doesn't go on the list of great recent European thrillers, but it's engrossing, and in the character of Martine/Candice, it touches real poignancy."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The enduring mythology of Monroe enters the story as a mildly engaging echo and turns into an all-consuming avalanche, leaving out in the cold much of what feels fresh and appealing about the film."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"You will watch this film with a baffled smirk on your face. At least I did."
‑ Witney Seibold, CraveOnline
"An intriguingly original and attractively shot whodunit that blends a sense of Marilyn Monroe-infused sadness into the mix."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"The actors are not especially charismatic, and the narrative, though well-plotted, lacks any sustained excitement."
‑ Gerald Peary, Boston Phoenix
"It's an enjoyable way to spend 100 or so minutes, but once it ends, it might make a disappearing act from memory."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"A playful French meta-mystery that's occasionally too proud of its own cleverness."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
""Nobody Else but You" is a complicated movie, and it's also a thrilling one because it so clearly knows what it's doing."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Easygoing French murder mystery casts a spell."
‑ Kelly Vance, East Bay Express
"The captivating Quinton lends the film haunting staying power."
‑ Michael Dequina,
""Nobody Else But You" takes a novel concept and a willing leading lady and squanders both through drab, lifeless storytelling."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
""Nobody Else But You'' has a great deal going for it, not the least of which is Rouve, who takes the novelist's obsessiveness, depression and general boorishness and turns it all into the source of his appeal."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"It wants to put a spell on us-but what we get feels less like magic than a fistful of Ambien."
‑ Tricia Olszewski, Washington City Paper
"Give the summer blockbusters a rest, and pay a visit to cool, picturesque "Little Siberia." You won't regret it."
‑ James Verniere, Boston Herald
"[Sophie] Quinton is sexy, sad, happy and melancholy as she builds her sympathetic Candice to a fully dimensioned tragic figure."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
