Our take

Murder, French-style! François Ozon, a master of dark character studies like Swimming Pool, lightened up for this acclaimed musical comedy-mystery that’s every bit as delicious as it sounds. The cast—wall-to-wall French royalty—includes Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, and Fanny Ardant!
