8 Women


An award-winning French murder-mystery-comedy-musical. It takes a slightly-over-the-top approach in ripping off the old-time Hollywood musicals, and a typical Agatha-Christie murder mystery, at the same time, using 8 of France's most famous actresses. The eight woman arrive for a weekend at an isolated house. They are all connected in some way to the host. Naturally, he ends up with a knife in his back, and everyone is a suspect. One woman appoints herself investigator, which leads to each woman revealing various dark secrets about herself and her connection to the deceased, frequently in music. Much fun is had by all...
