Two of Europe's most virile male stars, Michel Serrault and Ugo Tognazzi, portray two very flamboyant, aging gay gentlemen. Togazzi is the owner of a St. Tropez nightclub where the chief attraction is a drag act performed by his lover, Serrault. Tognazzi has a son from a former marriage who is engaged to the daughter of a politician who is a very active vigilant member of the Union of Moral Order. The son has carefully hidden his father's true profession. But now the upright -and uptight- politician and his wife are coming for a social visit, and the future of Tognazzi's son's marriage is at stake. Tognazzi and Serrault desperately try to "butch up" their home and manners for the ensuing visit. The hilarious complications of the evening are (not quite) beyond belief...
I really want the trailer!
The movie is pretty good but I had never seen the trailer before! It has this nostalgic seventies feel that is absolutely marvelous. I want the trailor onmy ipod! Please make trailors available!
Do not purchase this movie in English
This movie is one of the funniest foreign films ever! The role of Zsa Zsa is played to the hilt and the storyline is perfect for French farce. Do not purcase this movie UNLESS it is in French with subtitles. The dubbed version (which I believe this movie is for the language listed is English) just does not do this film justice. The high-pitched screams and overreactions as well as the dialogue for the other actors simply is ruined by the dubbing. Wait for the French with subtitles version.
La Cage Aux Folles
I first saw this movie in 1979 and it had subtitle in French and I just love the movie. Great actors, great plot and senes were great.
Still one of my all time favorites, it's a must see before you watch the Bird Cage and then you will understand the remake of this movie better.
