Potiche ★★★☆☆

" a hugely enjoyable ode to the delightfully playful cinema of France during the 1950s and 60s"

Set in the 1970s and showcasing the crème-de-le-crème of French film talent, Potiche (2010) is a lovingly nostalgic journey into the flamboyant films of Jacques Demy and Jean Renoir. Directed by renowned filmmaker François Ozon and starring legendary French actors Catherine Deneuve and Gerard Depardieu, Potiche is a comedy about the emancipation and political awakening of a trophy wife and has all the ingredients required to create a stylish portrait of continental whimsy.
