8 Femmes

Chris Campbell

The most unexpected treat of the Atlantic Film Festival so far (aside from the wonderful staff and volunteers) was the French film "8 Femmes" ("8 Women"), directed by François Ozon. It's hard to describe the film as it has a 50s look and feel combined with a murder-mystery and musical. There is also an amazing cast of French actresses: Danielle Darrieux, Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Emmanuelle Béart, Fanny Ardant, Virginie Ledoyen, Ludivine Sagnier, and Firmine Richard. It's darkly funny, surprising and gorgeous to look at and listen to. The film also has a neat bilingual Web site that uses Flash and features the trailer, photos, music, and information about the cast and crew as well as the production design.
