Potiche – 7

A supremely silly, or supremely stylized – depending upon your tolerance for Francois Ozon – family comedy in which the characters say exactly what they are thinking, sans nuance or consideration, and no one gets too upset. Come to think of it, that’s a good definition of a sitcom, too. Here, the main attraction is Catherine Deneuve, who looks fabulous in each new outfit, and there are many. I suppose that if they were all speaking English it would seem like an extended episode of The Office, but since they were speaking French, I fell for it. It was good to see Gerard Depardieu again, but not his extra fifty pounds.
