La Cage Aux Folles Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Robert Lane

A likable 1977 French farce (and the basis for the 1996 American remake, The Birdcage), this popular comedy was one of the most successful international films of all time, and even spawned a Broadway musical and two sequels. It tells the story of a gay couple who--when one man's son from a previous liaison brings home his fiancée--masquerade as husband and wife for their prospective in-laws. The film is saved from becoming an exercise in silliness by the heartfelt characterizations of the gay nightclub owners. La Cage aux Folles is one of the funniest imports from Europe and a great comedy in any venue.

Academy Awards

La Cage Aux Folles received Academy Awards nominations for Directing (Edouard Molinaro), Writing (Best Screenplay based on material from another medium; Francis Veber, Edouard Molinaro, Marcello Danon, Jean Poiret) and Costume Design (Piero Tosi, Ambra Danon).
