We are delighted to announce a live satellite Q&A with Catherine Deneuve and director François Ozon, hosted by Jason Solomons, following a preview of POTICHE.
Wednesday 15 June, 6.10
Director: François Ozon. Starring: Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu, Fabrice Luchini, Jérémie Renier, Sergi López. France 2010. 103 mins. French with English subtitles.
Suzanne (Deneuve) is the passive housewife of factory boss Robert Pujol (Luchini), a bristly tyrant of his domestic and professional realms. But life is about to change thanks to her husband’s errant behaviour. When the factory workers go on strike, taking a defiant Robert hostage in the process, Suzanne steps in to restore some pride in her family’s name and pick the business up off its knees. She calls old flame Maurice (Depardieu) to help her get the workers back on her side. But things get complicated when Maurice’s long-buried feelings are stirred by Suzanne’s nostalgic playfulness. Ebullient humour mixed with quintessential French charm in a ‘70s setting make POTICHE a joyous romp that brings the lighter aspects of French cinema giddily to the fore.
Please note a £2 supplement on the usual ticket prices applies for this screening.
