The content is simple enough: Madame Pujol is a „potiche“, a trophy wife, to a husband who runs an umbrella factory in provincial France. The workers are dissatisfied, so they go on strike, much to Monsieur Pujol’s dismay. When he is, after having been held hostage by his workers in hospital for some time, his wife runs the show – and does so very well.

A good movie

It had been quite a while since I saw a movie directed by François Ozon, so I was quite eager to check this one. 8 years after ‘8 femmes’, easily one of his most successful features, Ozon was working again with Catherine Deneuve and she was easily the biggest asset in this movie.

When her husband is taken hostage by his striking employees, a trophy wife (Deneuve) takes the reins of the family business and proves to be a remarkably effective leader. Business and personal complications arrive in the form of her ex-lover (Depardieu), a former union leader.

A good movie

“It had been quite a while since I saw a movie directed by François Ozon, so I was quite eager to check this one. 8 years after ‘8 femmes’, easily one of his most successful features, Ozon was working again with Catherine Deneuve and she was easily the biggest asset in this movie. Indeed, this time, she didn’t have to share the screen with an all-star French female cast, this time, she was the big star and she delivered once again a very strong performance. I mean, how should you portray a trophy wife in her twilight years without making her really pathetic but not really bright either? It was really tricky but she nailed it. On top of that, she was once again working with Gérard Depardieu, another monster of the French cinéma, and their scenes together were really nice to behold. ” read more

"Enjoyed it very much, recommended to those who liked "8 femmes", or people who like subtle and sartitic comedies."

With the plot come stylized, but funny and satiric characters along with some nice subtle and comical twists. Much as in 8 Women, Ozon presents a light, but well thought through comedy, with limited musical acts. So if you enjoyed “8 women”, you’ll like “Potiche”. Recommended.
