The Outrageous, Uproarious Smash Art‐House Comedy of The 1970S!

Renato (La grande bouffe’s Ugo Tognazzi) and Albin (Diabolique’s Michel Seerrault)— 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 warm‐hearted farce about the importance of non‐conformity 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 its hilarious performances and ahead‐of‐its‐time social message, there’s nothing like the audacious, dazzling original movie.
