Great comedy, possibly ruined by the remake
Like many Americans, I saw the remake “Birdcage” first. Only recently did I get a copy of the original. “La Cage aux Folles” is a great comedy, well deserving of its praise and classic status; I just wish I had seen it before I saw “Birdcage”.

The reason is (through no fault of the original French filmmakers and actors), the American remake is one of the few films that did a good job of suiting it for American audiences. They got some of the most recognizable and endearing actors, and they really played on the humor of America’s brutal division between Conservatives and Liberals. In other words, it hits home.

“La Cage” carries more of a nostalgic distance, in the fact that it’s both European and an older 70s film. Like watching “Casablanca”, you can get engrossed in the film, but you never quite picture yourself in context …especially when you keep thinking of Robin Williams and Nathan Lane who both did an excellent job of staying true to the original characters played by Tognazzi and Serrault.

OK, enough irrelevant comparisons. I just wanted to get that out first, in case you’re pondering whether to watch “La Cage” or “Birdcage” first. Definitely start with “La Cage”.

“La Cage aux Folles” is simply fabulous. With a screenplay by Francis Veber, whose pinpoint comedy and wit makes him a modern day Moliere, you can’t go wrong. Gags are handled with the perfect finesse, even the corny slapstick ones. The scene where Michel Serrault is learning (very unsuccessfully) how to butter his toast “like a real man” had me howling. I can’t imagine how Ugo Tognazzi could keep a straight face.

Other memorable gags happen throughout the film, and whether you’re French, American or Martian, you’ve got to understand the universal language of comedy. Serrault’s high pitched yelp gets my vote for funniest and most infectious sound uttered by a human since Homer Simpson’s “D’OH!” The story itself, while purportedly being about drag queens of loose moral character (haha), is safe, clean and absolutely fun for the whole family. Sexuality aside, it’s simply a classic comedy of errors that anyone can enjoy.

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES (Edouard Molinaro, 1978) ***
I had never watched this because I only owned it in French without subtitles (though it’s been shown several times on Italian TV over the years) but did catch the inferior first sequel dubbed in English; to be honest, I’m not particularly interested in checking out the Americanized version – even after acquainting myself with the original (soon after co-star Michel Serrault’s passing).

The film is well acted (by Serrault, Ugo Tognazzi and Michel Galabru) and very funny, though no masterpiece; it seems surprising now that a ‘vulgar’ farce would receive an Oscar nomination for Best Direction – that said, there’s no denying its originality and style and, in any case, LA CAGE AUX FOLLES epitomized the ‘alternative’ gay lifestyle and immediately became the prototype of such films.

To my mind, the two best gags are: Tognazzi showing his manliness by picking on a dwarf for an offence directed at his lover Serrault (with the little man nonchalantly pointing to the big guy behind him as the real culprit), and the homosexual couple’s black manservant (similarly inclined) bursting into laughter at seeing Serrault trying to pass himself off as Tognazzi’s wife: the latter’s son by a chance encounter is getting hitched and has brought his fiancé to meet the ‘family’ – the trouble is that the girl’s father, Galabru, happens to be an MP with a party dedicated to preserving Moral Order! Unfortunately, the film’s ending – the celebration of the wedding (following the fracas at the nightclub which, predictably, sees Galabru in drag) – is rushed and fairly lame when compared to what has gone on before.

I know the last entry in the series wasn’t very good and, really, this should have been left as a one-off; incidentally, Tognazzi made another popular sequence of comedies around this same time (all of which I still have in my ‘unwatched VHS’ pile) – AMICI MIEI – which Pietro Germi initiated but Mario Monicelli took over after the latter’s death, and with the third and final outing helmed by Nanni Loy.
