This is a very unusual murder/mystery, which is also a musical, but it all works very well. The acting by all is truly superb. I got it for the beautiful Catherine Deneuve to see what her later movies are like now. Absolutley loved her in it. Don`t let the fact that even though it`s a French movie put you off, though I don`t know why it would, but the English seem to have an aversion to foreign films!
