Filmographie de François Ozon

Potiche (2010)

PoticheSet in 1977 in a French provincial town, Potiche is a free adaptation of the 1970s eponymous French hit comic play. Deneuve is Suzanne, a submissive, housebound ‘trophy housewife’ (or "potiche") who steps in to manage her wealthy husband's umbrella factory after the workers go on strike and take him hostage. To everyone’s surprise, she proves herself a competent and assertive woman of action. But when her husband returns from a restful cruise in top form, things get complicated. Depardieu plays a union leader and Suzanne's former beau who still holds a flame for her. Acclaimed writer-director Francois Ozon (“8 Women”) twists the original on its head to create his own satirical take on the war between the sexes and classes.
