Movie Summary
A gaggle of mothers, wives, daughters, maids, and mistresses gather for a holiday homecoming at their country mansion -- and end up having to solve a murder-mystery -- in this musical-comic homage to studio-era womens pictures from acclaimed French director François Ozon. Partly inspired by George Cukors 1939 classic The Women, 8 Femmes stars Catherine Deneuve as Gaby, a high-society matron just returned to her country house to celebrate Christmas with her husband; mother Mamy (Danielle Darrieux); sister Augustine (Isabelle Huppert); and daughters Suzon (Virginie Ledoyen) and Catharine (Ludivine Sagnier). Not long after they all arrive, however, do they find the man of the house with a knife in his back, whereupon everyone becomes a suspect -- including maids Chanel (Firmine Richard) and Louise (Emmanuelle Béart). The mysterious arrival of Augustines sister-in-law Pierrette (Fanny Ardant) only complicates matters, as the titular eight women find themselves snowed in by a fierce blizzard, forced to confront the matter of the lifeless husband -- and their long-standing secrets and resentments -- without the aid of the police. Following its immensely successful release in France in early 2002, 8 Women enjoyed much acclaim at the Berlin and Toronto Film Festivals. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide

When that you\'re selecting a cables to connect your HDMI furnished devices, these will be some elements to remember.

As you are spending a good bit in the cable, you need to get one which is near future proofed - whilst your TELLY programs aren\'t broadcast inside 1080p, the new DVD and even game units are, so obtain cable that is 1080p licensed.To guarantee that it directs video as well as lossless sound recording, make for sure the cable television is HDMI 1.3.Many wires and cables longer compared to 10 feet continue to lose high-quality, so guantee that the cord is credentialed for 1080p.Last of all, pay awareness of how sprained the lead is, because a good number of versions do not have any type of locking machine, and it can wiggle free
