Directed by Francois Ozon
Three generations of French actresses are featured in
Francois Ozon's musical mystery comedy. When a wealthy industrialist is
found murdered, eight women close to him become the most likely suspects.
Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Emmanuelle Beart, Fanny Ardant,
Virginie Ledoyen, Danielle Darrieux, Ludivine Sagnier, and Firmine Richard
are the glamorous leading ladies. "Decked out in full '50s Technicolor, the
film marries an Agatha Christie murder mystery to Sirkian melodrama, vintage
pop musical numbers, and Ozon's own mischievous wit, which sneaks a few dark
twists into an otherwise bubbly affair" (Scott Tobias, The Onion A.V.
Club). French with English subtitles. 111 minutes.
