Winner “BEST FOREIGN FLM” at the Golden Globes, plus six international film festival awards for “BEST ACTOR”, “BEST FILM”

“This is basically the first sitcom in drag, and the comic turns in the plot are achieved with such clockwork timing that sometimes we're laughing at what's funny and sometimes we're just laughing at the movie's sheer comic invention. ”
  Roger Ebert, RogerEbert.com

“An international comedy sensation based on a successful French stage play.”
   Vincent Canby, The New York Times

“What could have turned out to be a case of “too many cooks in the kitchen” actually gives the film a refreshing range of comedic devices, as the film delights in sight gags, sly one-liners, deadpan reactions, physical humour, and tawdry burlesque without feeling scatterbrained or indecisive.”
   Chris Cabin, Slant Magazine

  1. :

    Although to younger viewers the style and presentation of this film may seem dated- stick with it. This is classic French farce. There are moments in this film which cannot be copied or bettered (i.e.the opening of the bottle of champagne). For best results, watch the film with the original soundtrack and use the subtitles. The dubbed soundtrack is camp and silly (Andrew Sachs sounds very silly and soppy). The French version is camp but brilliantly playful and in parts, trés elegante!
