Description: Edouard Molinaro directs this French farce with great élan. Renato (Ugo Tognazzi) runs a transvestite nightclub and has been living with the revue's star (Michel Serrault) for twenty years. When a son from his defunct marriage turns up and announces that he is going to get married, the gay couple are put into a tizzy. They try to pull off a meeting with the bride's parents (he is a Puritanical government official who heads a commission on moral order) by pretending that they are both straight and respectable. The encounter turns into a crazy and very funny comedy of errors. Watch online at Viooz: [Link removed - login to see ... (more)

CRITERION FILMS (781 movies items)

"Renato (Ugo Tognazzi) and Albin (Michel Serrault)—a middle-aged gay couple who are the manager and star performer at a glitzy drag club in Saint-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 French farce about the importance of nonconformity and being true to oneself. A breakout art-house sma"

30 Films about... Drag & Cross-dressing (30 movies items)

"A gay club owner and his drag queen partner masquerade as a typical husband and wife when their son's fiance's conservative family comes to visit. This French farce spawned two sequels, La Cage aux Folles II (1980) & La Cage aux Folles III - 'Elles' se Marient (1985). Also inspiring a Tony-award winning Broadway musical of the same name, and an American remake, The Birdcage (1996) which starred Robin Williams & Nathan Lane."
