Director André Téchiné brings his usual obsessions — including a preoccupation with the fortunes of the bourgeoisie — to this episodic drama, which serves as a thinly-veiled portrait of France’s economic peaks and valleys from the 1930s through the 1970s. Jeanne Moreau stars as Berthe Pedret, a simple laundry woman who marries Hector (Michael Auclair), son of a wealthy, upper class, Spanish immigrant family that owns a successful farm machinery factory. Through a series of vignettes, Techine depicts the passage of years, during which the ambitious working class woman blooms through several bold moves, such as negotiating a workers’ strike settlement and using her alliance with the war-time French Resistance movement to increase the enterprise’s prestige.
