Mystère à la Tour Eiffel: The French Lesbian Eiffel Tower Murder Mystery Period Costume Drama of Color in Which ZERO Lesbians Die that You’ve Been Waiting For

[with English subtitles here by the amazing sespursongles]

So I of course HAD to watch this myself to see if it was too good to be true.

It turns out, this movie was pretty much exactly what I was hoping it would be.

The murder mystery plot is funny and corny and surprising and  had a lot of twists and turns. The romance focuses on chemistry, intimacy, softness, and wooing. Two beautiful ladies in perfect gowns, hair, and makeup in gorgeous settings and lighting must somehow solve a murder mystery that has to do with the building of the Eiffel Tower, rescue each other from jail, asylums*, and many more mysterious dangers- all while casually flipping off the patriarchy so they can be together forever in eternal bliss.

The plot is basically this: Louise is a scandalously divorced woman, living with her father who coincidentally is one of the architects who helped design and construct the Eiffel Tower. After a shocking murder occurs there, a paramour foisted upon her by her father takes her on a date to a magic show where she meets the irresistibly beautiful and compelling Henriette. When Louise is framed for a second murder, Henriette offers her assistance in finding some answers before it’s too late.

It’s neither exploitatively sexual nor overly ambiguous “gals being pals.” It doesn’t take itself too seriously and it’s not trying to teach anyone a “moral lesson about [race/gender/sexuality]”; the way these aspects of the characters function in the narrative feels organic, empathetic, and relatable. You’re meant to identify with Louise and Henriette, rather than being invited to a voyeuristic display.

Overall, it’s fun, cute, awesome, and has some historical references involving detective work, architecture, psychiatry/psychology, magic and prestidigitation, and bowler hats. I’d recommend this to almost anyone, to be honest.

* slight spoilers after the cut but nothing big, with a few content notes

Just a reminder: the link to the ENGLISH subs is right up there^^^^

If anyone else makes subtitles in any other language (Japanese was requested on Twitter, FYI) , please send me a link so I can reblog!

In Sci Fi we see all these starships named Hyperion or Nabucodonosor, but the way things are going, they would probably be named Shippy McShipface
