The industrial Marcel Farnoult lives in a gorgeous house,
surrounded by six women.
First of all, Gaby, his seducing wife and Catherine, his
daugther, a independant and romantic girl. There is also Gaby’s mother,
Mamie, who drinks too much and is quite unliked by the rest of the
family. There is also Augusta, his ugly sister-in-law who loves him in
the most complete secrecy, Mrs Canelli, the nurse, and Louise, the maid.
When Suzon, the second daughter of Marcel, comes back from England,
pregnant, she discovers the body of her father, murdered. Then Pierrette
arrives, she’s the sister of the victim.
So we have eight women around a dead man… and a detective, who
will face the most complicated investigation of his life.
A great suspens, and a great movie made from a successful
theater piece from Robert Thomas and dialoged by Frédéric Dard.
