Actor Ugo Tognazzi refused to speak most of his lines in anything but Italian, which cause no end of problems for director Édouard Molinaro, according to an interview on the Criterion release. He says he was forced to re-write Tognazzi's French dialogue to match his lips speaking in Italian and bring in a French voice actor to re-dub the lines. See more »
I don't care what country you are from or what your sexuality is, La Cage Aux Folles is an endearing comedy the likes of which comes around perhaps once a decade.
Michael Serrault is the centerpiece of the film, as the star of the La Cage revue and the "mother" of the young man wishing to marry the daughter of an incredibly "moral" politico. The toast scene had me rolling on the floor...Serrault's high-pitched nervous yelps punctuate the film's comedy.
One of the few cult films really deserving of that status, La Cage is not one to be missed.
