From French director Francois Ozon, 8 WOMEN is a character drama and musical set in a country home during Christmastime in the 1950s. Though the atmosphere seems light and festive, when the host, Marcel, is stabbed in the back, one of the eight women in the house must be the culprit. The youngest of the bunch, Catherine (Ludivine Sagnier), is a teenager who loved her Daddy and also loves police novels. Her sister, Suzon (Virginie Ledoyen), is a student in England who has traveled home for the holiday. Their mom is Gaby (Catherine Deneuve), the ungrieving wife of Marcel, who never reveals too much. Grandma, who goes by Mamie (Danielle Darrieux), is an alcoholic who reveals that she's not as innocent as she looks when she walks right out of her wheelchair. Marcel's sister, Pierrette (Fanny Ardant) arrives mysteriously just after the murder. The maids, Louise (Emmanuelle Beart) and Chanel (Firmine Richard), are obviously up to no good as their stories keep changing. And the neurotic and hilarious Augustine (Isabelle Huppert), Gaby's sister, is the aging virgin who is just plain unstable. As each of these women interrogate each other, each singing her own song as a type of encrypted confession, there are some very funny moments. 8 WOMEN unfolds like a demented CLUE, with absurd tidbits of information--Chanel is actually an exotic dancer; Gaby and Louise are lesbian lovers--coming straight from Ozon's quirky sense of humor. A magnificent set, a snowy backdrop, and candy colored costumes complete this wacky tongue-in-cheek affair.

    I got hooked on this movie thanks to my college roommate who was a French major. It's absolutely charming, hilarious and wonderful! And Catherine Deneuve is marvelous as always.

    Overall, this is an excellent film. I was actually surprised that I was able to find it at a non-international product site; normally there isn't a huge selection of foreign films. The film itself is a very intertaining: a kind of humourous murder-mystery with a wonderful twist at the end--you'll never guess how it turns out!

  • Have a ball with this funny and fascinating film... the musical numbers are clever and priceless... Catherine Deneuve is an ageless beauty that shows us all how to let her hair down and have fun with the sometimes wacky material. The supporting cast complements her talent and shines on their own. A film that surprises and grows on you with each scene.
