Watching 8 Women, you have a silly grin half of the time.
Ozon fell in the tender trap of imitating American melodrama with some touches of musical and apparent farce. But the parody does not function, and the famous stars of French cinema, included their director, produced a telenovela whose value critics in general, had not doubted to qualify as a success. Having it considered a failure, I suppose, could have been judged politically incorrect,, regarding so solid cast and metteur en scene. In consequence, many of the critics were caged in the mousetrap. The moral is that Deneuve can be Lana Turner, and Huppert, Lucille Ball. Is it enough? Sometimes sleep the good Homerus.Adam Gai
