This is a fun little tribute to murder mysteries and the musicals of Jacques Demy. Although not perfect (the pacing is a trifle slow, dragging a bit in the middle), the eight women are some of the most formidably talented and lovely actresses in French cinematic history who acquit themselves with graceful aplomb.
It's campy and raucous, yet sometimes tender and revealing.
The story line is fantastical, the musical numbers can be uneven, but there are several gems (most notably, Chanel's soliloquy and the ending number "No Happy Love".) Overall, this is beautifully filmed, entertaining, sometimes touching and often funny. A very enjoyable entry for anyone who likes Agatha Christie murder-mysteries or French musical films.
