8 Femmes

Winter was back in full swing, today, and in honour I thought I would do a little post about one of my favourite winter films. A little while back I was trying to think of movies for each season and realised I could think of lots of summer films but hardly any winter films which weren't about Christmas. Now, I do love Christmas films but I like to watch them at Christmas time. Then, I remembered Fran├žois Ozon's 8 Femmes (8 Women). This is a great film to watch at any time but its winter setting makes it a wonderful film for the season! It also has some absolutely beautiful costumes, which I find very inspiring.

I just love Isabelle Huppert in this film. She's wonderful as the neurotic Augustine.

Catherine Deneuve is still incredibly beautiful!

The film is essentially a murder mystery crossed with a musical, so it's perfect for me. Each of the characters has her own song - this is one of my favourites.

I wish I could raid this film's wardrobe! I especially want the all pink ensemble.

  1. That looks like a fun movie. I had not heard of it before and I must check it out.

    Thanks doll,

  2. Oh my! The costumes!!! *swoon* I've heard of this film before, but haven't really bothered to check it out yet... But now I'm off to see if my library (which has an alarmingly good selection of French films) has it! :)

  3. The Glamorous Housewife: Oh, you're welcome! I hope you like it.
    Casey: I'm so glad I inspired you to check it out! I hope you find it - it's one of my favourites. =]

  4. Oh my, I would truly love to raid the costume section on the set of that film! :D I've never heard of this movie before, but will definitely add it to my "hope to see soon" list. Thank you, sweetie, for this cool movie find! :)

    Hope you're having a gorgeous week!
