The soundtrack to Francois Ozon's witty combination murder mystery/musical spoof 8 Femmes (titled 8 Women for the English-speaking market) stands out due to an unusual device in this French film that lent itself well to a CD compilation. In the movie, each of the eight characters gets a chance to sing a song that reflects their personalities. These songs, in turn, ape aspects of French pop music, and are sung not by outside vocalists who the actresses mime to in the picture, but by the actresses themselves. At least some of these are, in fact, covers of vintage songs from the '60s and '70s -- Françoise Hardy sang and co-wrote "Message Personnel" in 1973, for instance -- though it would be nice if the liner notes (wholly in French) detailed the original versions. The subtlety of it all might be a little beyond non-French audiences who will be less familiar with the actresses involved than the French will, though certainly many average moviegoers will be familiar with Catherine Deneuve, Fanny Ardant, and Isabelle Huppert, who contribute a song apiece. But there's considerable cheesy charm to be enjoyed in the eight vocal extracts, particularly Ludivine Sagnier's corny early-'60s twist-like "Papa T'es Plus Dans l'Coup," Virginie Ledoyen's "Mon Amour Mon Ami" (which is much like France Gall's mid-'60s ingenue pop), and Fanny Ardant's smoky torch song "A Quoi Sert de Vivre Libre." Unfortunately, those eight vocal songs comprise only about half the disc; the rest is given over to the romantic suspense of Krishna Levy's serviceable but unexceptional score. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi
