A musical detective, spiced up with a good laugh and a great performance by the beautiful actresses, in 2002 it was awarded the Silver Bear. So it’s Christmas Eve, the French countryside, snowed in, and eight women who begin investigating the murder of the owner of the estate where they have gathered. And so it begins: one by one skeletons fall out of the closet, and there seems to be no end in sight. And you try to guess at once, who the killer!
