What if Marilyn Monroe had never made it out of the sticks? That oddly inspired notion is explored in “Nobody Else But You,” a playful French meta-mystery that’s occasionally too proud of its own cleverness.

The sticks in this case is Mouthe, a backwater in the Franche-Comté region on the snowy Swiss border. David Rousseau (Jean-Paul Rouve), a successful but burned-out mystery novelist, arrives in town to claim an inheritance but gets hooked by the enigmatic death of Candice Lecouer (Sophie Quinton), a local beauty queen, cheese spokeswoman, and TV weathergirl. The closest thing the area has to a celebrity, Candice has been found in a frozen field clutching a bottle of sleeping pills. Murder? Possibly. The plot of David’s next book? Definitely.
