December 9, 2013
Seduction is more important than deduction in this chic display of star quality to the eighth power.
December 9, 2013
For all the tumultuous entrances and flouncing exits, the eight principals manage maybe three laughs among them.
December 9, 2013
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.
December 9, 2013
The cast is the main attraction in Francois Ozon's witty, even touching 8 Women.
December 9, 2013
The writing is very clever and it is a hoot watching the celebrated cast ham it up.
December 4, 2012
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.
June 11, 2008
Ozon's notion of derision is perfectly carried out by his multi-generational name cast.

This is a style of camp so broad that even the most bovine straight can get it.
March 7, 2003
The film starts to feel like decorative misogyny.
December 2, 2002
An oddity, not without charm.
November 11, 2002
Leave your sense of reason at the door and surrender yourself to the oo-la-laughs.
November 10, 2002
Ozon plainly worships the idea of the grand dame, and the movie allows him both to honor and deride his own devotion.
November 9, 2002
A delectable, frothy, often over-the-top 1950s murder mystery by director Francois Ozon.
November 6, 2002
A mess? You bet, but one that's not without its pleasures.
October 25, 2002
For pure camp, intentional or otherwise, this is right up there with The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
October 8, 2002
It is our awareness that five of the brightest French stars have come together to have fun that makes the picture bubble.
October 4, 2002
Visually, it adores the women it introduces. Emotionally and intellectually, it mocks them.
October 4, 2002
For French film fans, this is the equivalent of Bob Dylan, the surviving Beatles and the Rolling Stones jamming in the studio with an adoring producer behind the glass.
October 4, 2002
The acting is such a delight, with each actress nailing her respective personality type with appropriate flair and finesse, that it breathes with life.
October 4, 2002
Weightless entertainment that's both camp and true.
