eight women

See the grande dames of French cinema let loose in this cheeky homage to vintage thrillers, musicals, and soap operas. Of note are Catherine Deneuve and Danielle Darrieux as the matriarchs, Emmanuelle Bйart as the maid, Fanny Ardant as the outsider, and Isabelle Huppert as an absurdly uptight aunt. When the patriarch of the home is mysteriously murdered, the octet find themselves trapped in a country house suspecting each other of the deed. Features dark secrets, glamorous outfits, bitchy backstabbing, lesbian subtext, and campy song-and-dance numbers. [france, 2002]
