France 2001, 106 minutes
Dir. Francois Ozon
In French with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy, Suspense/Crime / Musical, Girl-centric


Aroview: In the classic whodunnit mould, this whimsical French "thriller" starts with a man’s dead body in a snowbound Alpine manse in the 1950s, and eight female suspects to find the truth out for themselves.

Graced with an excellent lineup – Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert and Emmanuelle Beart among them – the blueprint of Agatha Christie is readily apparent beneath the French stylings and wit, though this is played mostly for fun, with touches of farce, camp humour and a half dozen musical numbers!
