Movie I dig 009: Potiche (2010)

This is one pleasurable movie. It’s not complicated, nor is it shallow.

Basically, Potiche is a story about a house-wife who seems kind off naive and silly. She’s got a husband straight from hell. They own an umbrella-factory and have a son and a daughter. Then, the husband falls ill and needs to take some time off the job. Despite what everyone thinks of her, the house-wife steps forward as his replacement. I’m not going to spoil any further.

The house-wife is more than wonderfully portrayed by Catherine Deneuve. Really, she is the star in this one! You can always count on Gérard Depardieu to work the screen!  The last actor worth mentioning is Fabrice Luchini, who plays the evil evil husband. He must have had so much fun playing this character. Wild and relentlessly ridiculous is what he is!

This movie will definitely put you in a good 70s mood.
