48 Hours a Day


un film de : Catherine Castel

Marianne, a young woman with a bright professional future, is tired of seeing her career stall because she has to take care of all the chores on top of her job. She adopts some fairly radical methods to force her husband Bruno, a financial wheeler and dealer, to do his share of their daily tasks. Parity rather than disparity, 48 Hours a Day is a comedy on the fate of women today who continually juggle with their jobs, husbands, children and domestic lives.

French Synopsis :

Promise à un brillant avenir professionnel mais fatiguée de voir sa carrière plafonner parce qu’elle doit s’occuper en plus de toutes les tâches quotidiennes, Marianne, par des moyens plutôt gratinés, va pousser son mari Bruno, financier de haut vol, à partager le quotidien plus équitablement. Parité plutôt que disparité, 48 Heures par Jour est une comédie sur le sort des femmes d’aujourd’hui qui jonglent en permanence entre boulot, mari, enfants et maison.
