Set in 1977 in the north of France, director Francois Ozon reunites screen legends Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu in Potiche. Deneuve plays a submissive, housebound wife of a wealthy industrialist (Fabrice Luchini) who oversees his umbrella factory with an iron fist and is equally tyrannical with his trophy housewife (the eponymous “potiche”) and adult children. When the workers strike and take the husband hostage, Deneuve steps in to manage the factory. To everyone’s surprise, she proves herself a competent and assertive woman of action. Based on the 1970s hit comic play.
