Product Description


A likable 1977 French farce (and the basis for the 1996 American remake, The Birdcage), this popular comedy was one of the most successful international films of all time, and even spawned a Broadway musical and two sequels. It tells the story of a gay couple who--when one man's son from a previous liaison brings home his fiancée--masquerade as husband and wife for their prospective in-laws. The film is saved from becoming an exercise in silliness by the heartfelt characterizations of the gay nightclub owners. La Cage aux Folles is one of the funniest imports from Europe and a great comedy in any venue. --Robert Lane

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fabulous!!!! June 22 2004
La Cage Aux Folles is a hilarious French farce that spawned two sequels, a Broadway musical, and an equally good, but almost scene for scene remake (The Birdcage). Some people have said the film has stereotyped gay characters and that Serrault's constant screaming is annoying. I disagree--I found nothing offensive about the characters (gay men like Serrault exist, we've all met them!) and his screaming is actually very funny and brilliantly duplicated by Nathan Lane in the remake.
This is a great film, funny, touching, and simply wonderful. It was nominated for 3 Academy Awards and won the Golden Globe for best Foriegn Film. How many gay-themed films can you say that about?
P.S. Please ignore the R rating--the subject matter, which was pretty risky for 1978, has gotten rather tame. By today's standards, the film would easily get a PG-13.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny May 22 2014

Superb acting and very funny. I have seen it several times before but wanted to share it with friends so I ordered it. This is so much better than the American version with Robin Williams.

2.0 out of 5 stars Complaint March 20 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie story and acting are great. The subtitles are absolutely awful. They are in shortform and miss about 50% of the dialogue in the movie.
Whoever put this together should be discombobulated.

3.0 out of 5 stars comique exagéré mais bon tout de même March 16 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Pour l'image, bon c'est de la fin des années 70, hein. On ne peut pas faire de miracles non plus. Côté son, par contre, c'est pas loin d'être épouvantable. Il aurait peut être fallu repasser ça dans la moulinette à filtrer les parasites.
Sinon, le film reste encore et toujours plaisant à regarder avec un Michel Serrault qui en fait vraiment des tonnes, mais curieusement ça fonctionne! ...Il ne faut pas non plus être allergique aux mauvais doublages, coproduction franco-italienne oblige.
Et puis, rien que pour Galabru en Drag Queen, ce film vaut d'être visionné.

This movie came out when I was in college. My friends got to go bee it but I didn't. It has taken over 30 years for me to get to see it. I hope it really is as good and as humourous as my friends once thought it was.
