Daniel Patrick Sullivan,
"Rousseau" is a Parisian bestselling crime novelist, working on a new novel but desperately looking for a good story. "Candice Lecoeur" is a young, attractive, and vibrant woman who thinks she is the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. But Candice is living far away from the city. Born in a remote area of France, she manages to become a model for the small cheese factory based in the area. She becomes a star; but only a local one. The two will meet but only after Candice has been found dead. Cause of death: suicide by sleeping pills. Rousseau is the only one who doesn't buy it and who wants to know the true cause of her death. In his search for the truth, he will be confronted with many difficulties: becoming a detective-novelist and getting respect from the locals, and going beyond what some people want to keep secret forever.

The song Martine/Candice sings is "I Wanna Be Loved By You". Debbie Reynolds sang this in the movie 'Three Little Words' although in that movie, in spite of her excellent singing voice, she was dubbed by Helen Kane, the original Boop Boop a Doop girl. See more »
The dates listed in the diary entries are consistently wrong. For example, November 20, 1999, was not a Tuesday (it was a Saturday), and October 13, 2001, was not a Thursday (it was also a Saturday.) See more »
This crime writer arrives in winter and the first thing he sees is a dead woman being taken care of. That interests him and he starts to explore her life. It has voluntarily and involuntarily been a copy of the Marilyn Monroe story. Complete with "DiMaggio", "Arthur Miller" and so on.
It all turns into a crime story of the type he writes himself. But is it interesting? Absolutely too much of the traditional American thrillers here, but with people who don't belong there.
You can't even feel enough sympathy for the dead tragic woman to keep your interest up. It would have been better with more talk and less action.
