Synopsis:
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 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 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.
