Agatha Christie goes camp!, 18 Aug. 2003
This is a deliciously filmed, high camp and tongues thrust firmly into cheeks murder-mystery 'whodunnit'. Think classic Agatha Christie plot mixed in with The Rocky Horror Show and you're getting close. You've got a house deep in the French countryside with no communication with the outside world, enough snow to prevent anyone from coming or going, a corpse, and eight women, all of whom it transpires had a motive for murder. Throw in an all singing all dancing number for each of the women, Catherine Deneuve and Fanny Ardent looking edibly gorgeous throughout, and a most satisfying twist of the plot right at the end, and you have one of last year's best films!
