By François OZON, 2010, comedy, 1h40 with Catherine DENEUVE, Gérard DEPARDIEU,  Fabrice LUCHINI…

Synopsis : Set in a French bourgeois province in 1977, the film centres on Suzanne, the submissive wife of rich industrialist Robert Pujol who runs his umbrella factory with an iron fist. After the workers go on strike and hold Robert captive, Suzanne ends up managing the factory instead of her husband, who is disowned by the staff. Distressed and in poor health, Robert goes away for a while and, to the surprise of most, Suzanne proves to be an assertive woman of action. With the help of the communist deputy she puts an end to the strike, gets the factory running again and improves the employees' working conditions. But when Robert returns from his trip in good health, the situation gets complicated.
