Molinaro, Edouard - La Cage Aux Folles (1978) (Criterion Collection Uk Import)
Releasedatum: 2 april 2018
Renato (LA GRANDE BOUFFE'S Ugo Tognazzi) and Albin (DIABOLIQUE'S Michel Serrault)a middle-aged gay couple who are the manager and star performer at a glitzy drag club in St. Tropez agree to hide their sexual identities, along with their flamboyant personalities and home decor, when the ultraconservative parents of Renato's son's fiancée come for a visit. This elegant comic scenario kicks off a wild and warmhearted farce about the importance of nonconformity and the beauty of being true to oneself. A modest French comedy that became a breakout art-house smash in America, Edouard Molinaro's LA CAGE AUX FOLLES inspired a major Broadway musical and the blockbuster remake THE BIRDCAGE. But with it's hilarious performances and ahead-of-it's-time social message, there's nothing like the audacious, dazzling original movie.
