Très bon film amusant, à l'esthétique intéressante.

The film is OK if you are a fan of Catherine Deneuve, who played a gullible housewife while his obnoxious husband is fooling around outside and bullying his factory workers. This film did not interest me much. French with subtitles.

Entertaining, however the story did not flow.

Frothy 70s-style comedy; a vehicle to showcase the elegant and still-beautiful Catherine Deneuve as a trophy wife who turns out to be more than just a pretty face. All the actors are good, although Gerard Depardieu seemed a little out of place.

A charming, amusing film. The case is great, particularly those two icons of French cinema, Deneuve and Depardieu.

When her husband is taken hostage by his striking employees, a trophy wife (Deneuve) takes the reins of the family business and proves to be a remarkably effective leader. Business and personal complications arrive in the form of her ex-lover (Depardieu), a former union leader.

Une jolie comédie qui laisse sur sa faim - Catherine Deneuve joue à merveille la femme soumise du PDG. Quel plaisir de la voir s'émanciper. Mais par la suite, l'histoire bifurque et sombre dans l'invraisemblable.

A tongue-in-cheek French farce. Light fair and quite enjoyable. The subtitles were easy to follow for an anglophone like me.

Of dramatic interest in places but dated.
