His new neighbour comes up with an idea to prevent such a thing to happen: he spreads the rumor that he’s gay so that the factory management might be afraid they’ll be sued for sexual discrimination. Of course, nothing happens as it should, but the changes in François Pignon’s life -and other people’s too- is drastic !
Plot: A man spreads the rumor of his fake homosexuality with the aid of his neighbor, to prevent his imminent firing at his work.

A breath of fresh air
This film was recently released in Paris and involved a substantial number of French comedians – Auteuil, Rochefort, Laroque, Derpardieu Lhermitte, Aumont et alia. The acting of Auteil, Depardieu and Rocherfort above all is very amusing and good. I found Thierry Lhermitte’s role in this film of less “importance” than in others, e.g. Le Diner de Cons and ” Le Père Noël es une Ordure”. The situation (probleme of homosexuality being or not being used as a way of firing or not firing someone )relates very much to today and the average spectator will be able to relate to the scenes of the film especially if he or she works in an office. I found the film most amusing, much better than ‘Diner de Cons’ (which had a bitter side to it). I think this film should better stand the test of time like some of Veber’s previous servings ( La Chèvre, Compères Fugitifs ). The other thing is that is is not typically French and should be able to have a truly international appeal. Veber has this gift, I think of being able to be creative outside the French “carcan” and many of his works are remade internationally. Well worth seeing, wherever you come from and especially of you are feeling down in th mouth !!!!!
Being gay at a condom factory has its advantages. Hilarious French comedy which brilliantly satirizes stereotypes and political correctness.
French comedies, I love them. They dont come much better than this. “Le Placard” (The Closet) is a French comedy with a terrific star cast: Gerard Depardieu and Daniel Auteuil. Big names in France and Europe, for those who might not know them. Both actors are hilarious in serious acting.The story by itself is hilarious too: a (hetero sexual) worker at a condom factory is on the brink of being fired because of downsizing. He schemes a plan to avoid being sacked: he insinuates that he is gay, while he is not. Smart move, because the factory doesnt want any bad publicity over sacking a gay employee, because that might negatively influence one of their biggest buyers of condoms: the gay community.
What is most important about a comedy for me? True to life characters. And those characters are to die for in this movie. Anyone will recognise the calculating boss, who will do anything to make a profit. Anyone will also instantly recognise the scheming collegues who gossip behind your back. But surely everyone will sympathise with the main character who is fighting for his job with some very smart (legal) tricks.
I laughed my head off. One of the best French comedies around. Advised to watch with subtitles, because there is no substitute for the lovely French language. Jokes just are better in the original language.
