French director François Ozon's international hit manages to spoof both convoluted film whodunits and overblown Hollywood musicals: Agatha Christie as envisioned by Baz Luhrmann. One of the romp's chief joys is having eight of modern French cinema's most accomplished actresses take their turns in elaborately staged song and dance numbers, performances that compose this soundtrack's first half. Those showcases range from Ludivine Sagnier's loopy, '60s a-go-go take on "Papa T'es Plus dans L'Coup" through Fanny Ardant's breezy Parisian jazz, Isabelle Huppert's world-weary "Message Personnel," and Catherine Deneuve's tango-tinged "Toi Jamais." Coupled with Krishna Levy's masterfully earnest orchestral score (which offers a few fond nods to such '40s Bernard Herrmann romantic classics as Jane Eyre), the film's campy delights are crucially delivered deadpan and with nary a knowing wink, a tack that ensures its musical triumph–tongue firmly in cheek, or otherwise. –Jerry McCulley
