Potiche - Movie Review

Potiche is a French comedy set in 1977 about a trophy wife, Suzanne (Catherine Deneuve) who gets the chance to run her tyrannical husband's (Fabrice Luchini) umbrella factory when he falls ill, at the urging of the Mayor, played by Gerard Depardieu. She is extremely successful and improves the morale of the employees and improves business as well. Gender discrimination is pertinent in this movie so it is a triumph to women when Suzanne is able to run the factory so well and when is asked to give it up, runs for mayor and wins!

Potiche is a very cute movie and the actors did a great job while dealing with an important topic. It's a light movie that's sure to entertain. Potiche is out in theatres now.
