8 Women (8 Femmes) Reviews

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The film weaves visual elegance, lesbian subtext, six hilariously inappropriate song-and-dance numbers and a flair for chiffon into a showcase for leading ladies of French cinema past and present.

Seduction is more important than deduction in this chic display of star quality to the eighth power.

A dubious proposition for the Francophobic, but it acquits itself with a script so ridiculous that it can't help but be engaging.

Pure joy. That's what you will feel as you float out of the theater after seeing this wacky musical whodunit starring several of France's most accomplished and best known actresses.

A note of genuine sadness sneaks through at the end, but for the most part, enjoying 8 Women involves coming to terms with its artificiality and learning to appreciate it from a distance. Behind all that thick glass, it's still a work of art.

The cast is the main attraction in Francois Ozon's witty, even touching 8 Women.

The writing is very clever and it is a hoot watching the celebrated cast ham it up.

The French screen royalty assembled by Ozon and the film's sheer exuberance in its own artifice make this a delight from beginning to end.

An Agatha Christie drawing room mystery crossed with the '50s setting and melodrama of Douglas Sirk crossed with the musicality of Jacques Demy with some Aaron Spelling bitchery thrown in for good measure.

There cannot be many people who wouldn't want to pay to see Deneuve smash a bottle over the head of an old woman in a wheelchair.

Frothy, racy frivolity starring such French all-stars as Danielle Darrieux, Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert and Emmanuelle Béart.

Ozon's notion of derision is perfectly carried out by his multi-generational name cast.

Klopt elementen van een Agatha Christie whodunnit, een frivole chansonmusical en de kleurrijke melodramas van Douglas Sirk op tot een luchtige souffle, als is de kooktijd wel wat lang.

We have powerful chemistry between Fanny Ardant and Catherine Deneuve in a film that does its trivial thing with real aplomb.

Some may find Ozon's rigorously clever deconstruction of so many conventions a little too French for their tastes, but cineasts and worshippers of les femmes at their most fatales will find this farce wonderfully fierce.

Excepcional policial-comédia-drama-musical com um elenco fabuloso, direção de arte e figurinos notáveis e direção firme e elegante de Ozon.

In a film season dominated by male-oriented action flicks, 8 Women provides the feminine charm and sophistication to soothe the film-loving connoisseur in all of us.

Empire Magazine

The enfant terrible of French cinema, François Ozon's brave foray into the mind of not one, but eight, women is a gloriously-executed examination of what lies beneath the manicured façade of the female species.

...the true spirit of the film is in the story of desperate women who will do desperate things to make themselves happy, no matter who they hurt.
