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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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. Read morePublished 17 months ago by DAVID ROSIER
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. Read morePublished 17 months ago by KiKOiComment
