POTICHE 2010 (15) – colour 114 mins (comedy) François Ozon
Tightfisted factory owner Robert Pujol is so shocked when his workers strike for higher wages that he suffers a heart attack. His acquiescent wife, Suzanne, whose father had founded the factory, takes over the management. To her own surprise, she turns out to be a natural leader whose less dictatorial management inspires both her workers and local liberal politician Babin.
