Surprisingly Witty and Funny
3 August 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The foreman Marc Modena (Clovis Cornillac) and his beloved girlfriend Emma (Julie Depardieu) buy an old house expecting to raise a family of their own. Soon Marc sees five gay clubbers partying all the nights in the basement and disturbing him with the loud music. However Emma does not see the men and believes Marc is getting crazy; then she leaves him. Marc researches the Internet and finds that the basement of his house was a gay nightclub. In 1979, it has blown-up and five bodies have not been found. Marc also contacts a medium that explains that only straight people are able to see the ghosts that are trapped in the house. Meanwhile Marc befriends the gay ghosts and they decide to help him to get Emma back.

"Poltergay" is one of those films that a straight viewer has lower expectation; however, it is surprisingly witty and funny since it is not racy. Most of the jokes are silly and even naive but make laugh. But the characters are charismatic and the film is entertaining. My vote is six.
