8 Women

I just returned from my friends Missy and Jan's. I went over to see a lovely film they insisted I see, called "8 Women" I'm glad I did.
It's a French film from 2002.

If you like frothy French musicals about suicide, incest and rampant lesbianism, (and who doesn't??)
well, this one is for you.

The 50s costumes alone are worth the ticket.)

This completes a trilogy of favorite Catherine Deneuve films I've been introduced to by friends: "Belle De Jour," "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" and now "8 Femmes"
All are wonderful.

I've heard of this movie and I will be adding it to my Netflix list. It looks interesting. I also recommend, Bon Voyage with Isabelle Adjani. I thought it was very entertaining.

Madame Bovary with Isabelle Huppert is steamy in a different way. You know those Frenchies!

Ohh, I've wanted to see The Umbrellas of Cherbourg forever! This sounds good, too.

Carlos can't get enough of the Kitty Francais!

I'm still waiting for the Kitty Francais musical myself!
But the Umbrellas of Cherbourg is great....once you get past the unbelievable shock of the first musical number.
You'll either think it's the most insane, stupidest thing ever....or love it.
And the wallpaper, well, you just have to see the wallpaper....
