Darum geht's

A breakout art-house smash, Edouard Molinaro’s La Cage aux Folles inspired a major Broadway musical and a blockbuster remake. But with its hilarious performances and ahead-of-its-time social message, there’s nothing like the audacious, dazzling original movie.

Though its politics are still quite progressive, La Cage aux Folles is ultimately a work of classicism, crafted with precision and efficiently paced. Molinaro is no Sturges, but his film moves with an unlabored leanness and exactitude that one can find in The Palm Beach Story or, even more similarly, in Vincente Minnelli’s The Father of the Bride.

La Cage seems quaint today, but its buffoonery feels specific to its outlandish, situational-comedy conceit. The film’s insistent swishiness may still strike some as mockery and therefore repellent, but at heart La Cage aux folles preaches such outmoded ideas as compassion and tolerance.
