From Leonard Maltin's Movie & Video Guide:
Rich, colorful film based on life of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the 19th century Parisian artist whose growth was stunted by childhood accident. Huston brilliantly captures the flavor of Montmartre, its characters, and Lautrec's sadly distorted view of life. Excellent cast; memorable theme song by Georges Auric. Oscar winner for its stunning art direction-set decoration and costumes.
© Leonard Maltin, 1998, used by arrangement with Signet, a division of Penguin Putnam, Inc.

Synopsis: A contemplative and wise film about the nature of love and commitment; one in Eric Rohmer's series, "Six Contes Moraux/Six Moral Tales". A 35 year-old man who's engaged to be married for the first time becomes obsessed with a lovely but shallow teenager; the particular focus of his fascination is her knee, which he desires to touch, however fleetingly. As he struggles with how -- and whether -- to fulfill this minor fantasy, he considers the way his life has turned out and the kind of bourgeois, settled existence his friends lead. Calmly and cooly watching the man's emotional turmoil is the teen's younger sister, who deeply adores him -- and who, despite her youth, may well possess more wisdom than he.

Synopsis: 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. -- Robert Lane

Annotation: Academy Award Nominations: Best Director, Best (Adapted) Screenplay, Best Costume Design.
