Eccentric characters, town Mouthe (known for having the coldest recorded temperature in France,) racy cheese ads, a hot weather reporter, a French James Ellroy writer etc. made an original whodunit mystery with a good mix of humor and twists.

A French mystery writer suffers from writer’s block and he finds a story about a beautiful blonde that is mysteriously found dead buried in a snow bank. He explores the woman’s past and using details of her life writes his next novel. Is this film really an imagining of the circumstances of the life and death of a famous American blonde actress? Hey it’s only a film. Upon leaving the film not only we thank the writer for imagining the blonde’s life story, the writer also gets a thank you note from the blonde.

Beautiful cinematography. The snow, color and lighting, breathtaking. Good story. We all have a fascination with Marilyn. The relationships are quirky and funny.

In a nutshell, Twin Peaks ala Française. A good mystery and great acting.

Very slow moving.. Some likeable moments. It had a better potential.

Nicely done and original French mystery. A bit of a David Lynch fee, but lighter.

This was one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. Very good acting, some nostalgia, romance, intrigue and humor. This film has it all.
