Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Nobody Else But You (Poupoupidou) review - London Film Festival
Director: Gérald Hustache-Mathieu
Cast: Jean-Paul Rouve, Sophie Quinton, Guillaume Gouix, Arsinée Khanjian

Pulp crime writer David (Rouve) heads to Mouthe in search of his next story. In the icy fields outside the town, he finds it: Candice (Quinton), the local weather girl and part-time model, who lies dead in the snow with a bottle of sleeping pills.

Why did she kill herself? Was it actually murder? David takes it upon himself to investigate. Secret affairs, missing diaries and political scandals are all buried under the ice and director Hutsache-Mathieu has great fun digging them out. Rouve's detective has the charisma of an old gumshoe, while Quinton's glamorous victim narrates from beyond the grave with a knowing smile.

Playfully riffing on Marilyn Monroe's life (including a great, scratchy cover of the titular number), Nobody Else But You has all the intrigue of a chilling noir and all the dark humour of a snowbound Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Some Like It Cold? With such cool class and witty writing, it's hard not to.
