Potiche DVD Review


Synopsis: Set in 1977 in a provincial town, Potiche is a witty and charming comedy starring Catherine Deneuve as Suzanne Pujol, a housebound 'trophy wife' (or potiche) who steps in to manage an umbrella factory run by her tyranical husband after the workers go on strike. To everyone's surprise, Suzanne proves herself a competent and assertive woman of action. Gerard Depardieu plays a union leader and Suzanne's ex-beau who still holds a flame for her. With Potiche acclaimed writer-director Francois Ozon (Swimming Pool, 8 Woman) has created a satrical and hilarious take on the war between the sexes and classes.

Review: Potiche is a silly movie package with a more serious underlying message.  The film really puts forth a funny face and gives some good laughs on the battle between the sexes, but in the end it really puts your thinking to the test.  I was surprised at the depth of the film, which I expected to stay completely light-hearted.  This one was a great surprise and definately one to watch.

Interest Range: Comedy
