Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Emmanuelle Béart, Fanny Ardant.
With tongue firmly placed in cheek,François Ozon offers up for our delight his Agatha Christie-style murder mystery-cum-musical. The '8 women' are all suspects in the murder, and all suspect each other. It's all hilarious plot, stylish behaviour, and barbed wit. As if the mounting ridiculousness of each confession and revelation wasn't enough, each woman has her own song-and-dance routine through which to indulge herself and expound her character. 8 Women oozes acting talent, with each woman sending up her public persona and revelling in the fabulousness of it all - as they also probe the complex dynamics between mothers and daughters, female siblings, mistresses, servants and romantic rivals.
Berlin Film Festival 2002: Silver Bear
Ozon nominated for the Golden Bear


open_quote Really, really good.......with shuttlecocks of barbed dialogue swatted back and forth by an octet of French cinema's nimblest actresses, 8 Women is a hoot close_quote Washington Post
