One murdered man, eight women, each seeming to be more eager than the others to know the truth. Gimme, gimme, gimme some clues to make up my mind. And eventually enter the truth. Oh, thou cruel woman! (IMDb)
This is a French movie that I’ve been meaning to see for awhile. It’s part murder mystery, part musical, and so incredibly campy. For the mystery part, there are a million twists and turns as the ladies try to figure out which one of them killed Marcel. I lost track of a lot of them and then realized at the end that some of them weren’t addressed at all. It’s actually a lot of fun to watch. As for the musical part, I actually didn’t really need it. The songs were light, and kind of all sounded the same. Also, I’m one for songs in musicals to further something, whether it be the plot, relationship, character development, etc. The songs basically were just stuck in, but it did give the whole thing more theatricality. So, don’t go into it with heady expectations or anything, but it’s just pure fun.
