Sound familiar? It should, because this is where The Birdcage got it's story from. I must say that this is as funny (if not funnier) as the Americanized version. Some of my favorite scenes include Tognazzi trying to teach Serrault to act "macho" and of course, the dinner sequence, where everything that could possibly go wrong, does. The story was obviously inspired from the screwball comedies of the 30's and 40's, but also has a certain touch of originality, lacking in other films that try to emphasize that particular genre. If for nothing else, see it for Serrault's flamboyant performance. It's a scream!
