La Cage aux Folles – Blu-ray & DVD
[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Tahoma;font-size:16px;]Renato ([/color]La grande bouffe[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Tahoma;font-size:16px;]’s Ugo Tognazzi) and Albin ([/color]Diabolique[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Tahoma;font-size:16px;]’s Michel Serrault)—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 warmhearted farce about the importance of nonconformity and the beauty of being true to oneself. A modest French comedy that became a breakout art-house smash in America, Edouard Molinaro’s [/color]La Cage aux Folles[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Tahoma;font-size:16px;] inspired a major Broadway musical and the blockbuster remake [/color]The Birdcage.[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Tahoma;font-size:16px;] But with its hilarious performances and ahead-of-its-time social message, there’s nothing like the audacious, dazzling original movie.[/color]

I caught this on HBO(CineMax, Showtime...whatever) once.

 

It is amazing how "word for word" the remake is. This might be a purchase.
