Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Gerard Depardieu & Fabrice Luchini
Written and directed by François Ozon

In the late 70s, a French “trophy housewife” steps in to manage the umbrella factory run by her tyrannical husband after the workers go on strike and proves herself to be an excellent leader.

Deneuve is charming,
but the troll-like Depardieu’s
a miscast relic.
