Potiche in competiton in Venice and Toronto Film Festivals

Catherine Deneuve in Potiche

Potiche, the new movie directed by François Ozon starring Catherine Deneuve (picture on the left), Gérard Depardieu, Fabrice Luchini, Karin Viard, Jérémie Rénier and Judith Godrèche, has been selected for the 67th Venice International Film Festival (September 1-11, 2010) and for the 35th Toronto International Film Festival (September 9-19, 2010).

Set 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.

Potiche will be released in France November 10th, 2010 (Mars Films Distribution).
