  1. So original, so funny, so alive with drama, intrigue, mystery and colors that you want to see it again and again.
  2. 88
    One of the most uplifting and delightful films to have come along this year.
  3. It's pretty safe to say that claustrophobic, gay-themed murder mysteries haven't been this much fun since "Deathtrap."
  4. 75
    Even if some of the references are inscrutable, a lot of 8 Women is a riot. Here and there Ozon finds the key to a level of farce that would have amused Bunuel himself.
  5. The cast is the main attraction in Francois Ozon's witty, even touching 8 Women.

    For all its careful plotting, some viewers may find the exercise ultimately hollow and nasty, but thesps make the experience completely worthwhile.
  7. 10
    For all the tumultuous entrances and flouncing exits, the eight principals manage maybe three laughs among them.
