8 femmes
8 Femmes
Inspired by Douglas Sirk's Hollywood melodramas of the fifties, Ozon assembled the crème de la crème au féminin for his riotous candy-coloured whodunit, set in a snowbound mansion.

Among a glamorous cast featuring Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Fanny Ardant and Emmanuelle Béart, Ozon's heroines sing, dance, cat fight, sleuth and seduce their way through the Agatha Christie-esque landscape with entertaining results!

A feast for the eyes, 8 Femmes was an international success for Ozon, showcasing his enormous talent for playing with genre and tackling the film medium with daring abandon. 

"Whatever you call this one-of-a-kind bonbon spiked with wit and malice, it's classic oo-la-la." Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
