Catherine Deneuve commands the screen with a regal wink as Suzanne Pujol, a trophy wife (‘potiche’) whose mettle is tested when catastrophe strikes in her husband Robert’s umbrella factory. The smug, philandering Robert, who secured the factory through her dowry, is taken hostage by his employees, and it is Suzanne who negotiates his release, with the help of union leader Babin (Gérard Depardieu).
Under the assured direction of François Ozon, this stylish farce is an irresistible romp through 1970s kitsch, politics and female emancipation.
