Cork Cine Club presents the ever-luminous Catherine Deneuve in the French comedy, Potiche (Trophy Wife) on Thursday 26 April at 8pm in the Crawford Art Gallery.
Set in 1977 in a provincial French town, this comedy sees Suzanne, (Deneuve), as the trophy wife of wealthy industrialist Robert, who rules both his family and his umbrella factory with an iron fist . When the workers go on strike and take Robert hostage, Suzanne steps in to manage the factory. To everyone’s surprise, she proves herself a competent and assertive woman of action.
Business and personal complications arrive in the form of Suzanne’s ex-lover and former union leader, tenderly played by Gerard Depardieu. A satirical and hilarious take on the war between the sexes and classes. T
