Here is the plot description for “Potiche”:

Set in 1977 in a provincial French town, “Potiche” is a free adaptation of the 1970s eponymous hit comic play. Catherine Deneuve is Suzanne Pujol: a submissive, housebound “trophy housewife” (or “potiche”) who steps in to manage the umbrella factory run by her wealthy and tyrannical husband (Fabrice Luchini) after the workers go on strike and take him hostage. To everyone’s surprise, Suzanne proves herself a competent and assertive woman of action.

But when her husband returns from a restful cruise in top form, things get complicated. Gérard Depardieu plays a former union leader and Suzanne’s ex-beau who still holds a flame for her. Acclaimed writer/director François Ozon (“Swimming Pool,” “Under the Sand,” “Time to Leave”), who had previously directed Deneuve in the international hit “8 Women,” twists the original play on its head to create his own satirical and hilarious take on the war between the sexes and classes.

“Potiche” reunites French cinema legends Catherine Deneuve and Gérard Depardieu in an ensemble cast that includes comic greats Fabrice Luchini and Karin Viard (as Luchini’s secretary and mistress) while Judith Godrèche and Jérémie Renier play the Pujols’ entitled daughter and sexually ambiguous son. The impeccable 1970s era set design and costumes were created by Katia Wyzkop and Pascaline Chavanne respectively.

The movie trailer for “Potiche” can be watched now below.

A good reason to be a trophy

A good reason to be a trophy husband is because you can spend a little extra to have things delivered to me, so you don’t have to worry about me getting in any fender benders during the day while I’m running errands.

I could only be a trophy wife if I was treated respectfully by my partner and devoted my time to philanthropic work.
