North of France, Sainte-Gudule, 1977.

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. But when Robert returns from a restful cruise in top form, things get complicated…

Starring Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu, Fabrice Luchini


Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Hugely enjoyed by everyone. Amusing without being silly. Very French and made one feel you had entered a different environment for the evening. Perfectly period set in the late 1970s. Highlyl recommended.

Potiche was good. Very enjoyable great acting, with 'zest'! Definitely recommended.

Not the greatest reviews, but very much enjoyed by our audience.
