(2002) dir. François Ozon
I don’t have much to say about this movie. I enjoyed it.
It’s a farcical take on the drawing room murder mystery, enlivened by musical numbers performed by each of the 8 Women of the title. The tone is consistently light and comical, verging on occasion into the realm of camp, particularyly in the cat-fight wrestling/lesbian kiss sequence. It’s a star-studded affair of French femmes, featuring Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Emmanuelle Béart, Fanny Ardant, and Virginie Ledoyen among others.
What can I say, it was pretty fun.
