PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – This week a couple of French filmmakers highlight the week’s video list.
Potiche is a witty comedy set in 1977 in a French provincial town of that name. Catherine Deneuve plays a housewife who steps in to manage a factory run by her tyrannical husband when the workers strike. Gerard Depardieu plays a union leader and the wife’s old flame.
Audrey Tatou stars in Amelie, a French hit of ten years ago dealing with a very lonely lady. The production is every bit as delightful today as it was then.
Other new home video releases include Limitless, starring Robert DeNiro and Bradley Cooper, about a man whose life changes when a friend introduces him to a revolutionary drug that allows him to develop his full potential.
And, then there’s Rango, in which Johnny Depp lends his voice to an animated chameleon who becomes the defender of the lonely western town of Dirt.
