It’s an ironic, noir, refined and rich of suspence, based on Robert Thomas’ theater piece (there’s allready a film adaptation by French Ozon)
It’s not longer a musical, historical setting is not in ’50s but in ’30s, and we have one woman less (they are only 7)
It seems hard job for italian actresses (the french version actresses are very famous and award winning names), but Alessandro Genovese (the director), pointing to the fun, gives them greatest freedom: this could be the end, but has generated a strong friendship.
It’s the night before Christmas, and in a remote country house, a man is killed, each of 7 women has good reason for this (love, money, legacy) and starts a funny investigation where nothing it’s like seems a moment ago.
Unica nota negativa la battuta finale, che a parti inverse avrebbe scatenato mille polemich.
SYNOPSIS: Set in 1930s Italy, 7 WOMEN AND A MYSTERY recounts the frantic hours following the inexplicable murder of a businessman, husband and father, at the centre of a colourful group of women who, after gathering in the family villa to celebrate Christmas Eve together, find themselves forced to confront and reveal secrets and subterfuges to each other as they try to solve a mystery that somehow concerns them all. In fact, they are all suspects: who will be the murderer?
