The Birdcage (1996)



The Birdcage (1996)


Jutros sam se probudio neuobičajeno rano. Kiša udarila kao da nikada neće stati. Očito da ću još jedan dan provesti doma.
Sinoć sam čekao da me Buco zovne. Pustio sam jedan film i pojačao ton jer je imao dobru muziku. Nisam čuo poziv. A čekao sam 4 sata da mu čujem glas. Od nervoze sam na kraju pogasio sve telefone.
Za danas vam preporučujem mnogo vedriji film od mog raspoloženja.

The Birdcage je američka verzija francuskog filma La cage de foley.
Odrađena je u vrijeme predsjedničke kampanje Bila Clintona, te se to na neki način prenijelo i na ovaj fim.
Popriči nekih mojih prijatelja, ova komedija spada među bolja ostvarenja. Zista ima gomilu komičnih scena i zaista prija odgledati ovaj film u opuštajućoj atmosferi.
Siguran sam da će vas sjajni glumci Robin Williams , Gene Hackman i Nathan Lane odlično zabaviti.

Val Goldman (Futterman) i Barbara Keeley (Flockhart) odluče da se vjenčaju i da to saopšte njihovim porodicama. Valov otac, Armand Goldman (Williams), vlasnik gay cluba The Birdcage, živi sa njegovim ljubavnikom Albertom (Lane), koji nastupa u klubu pod imenom "Starina," Barbarin otac je ultrakonzervativni republikanski senator, Kevin Keeley (Hackman), jedan od osnivača fondacije "Koalicija za red i moral" i nalazi se usred izborne kampanje.

Barbara bojeći se reakcije njenih roditelja saopšatava da je Valov otac grčki kulturni ataše .
Val pokušava da oca natjera da odglumi str8 Grka, al to ne ide sve tako jednostavno.

The comic brilliance of Robin Williams combines with the gifts of Oscar winning director Mike Nichols in a contemporary American version of the outrageous French comedy La Cage Aux Folles.

Two-time Academy Award winners Gene Hackman (Unforgiven, The French Connection) and Dianne Wiest (Bullets Over Broadway, Hannah and Her Sisters), and Broadway star Nathan Lane ("Guys and Dolls") also head the cast of this insightful comedy that gives new meaning to the phrase straighten up and fly right.

As modem as this minute, as pertinent as today, this Elaine May- scripted film portrays Armand (ROBIN WILLIAMS) and Albert (NATHAN LANE) as having a home life many would envy. They share a long-term committed relationship encompassing their lives and careers and have together raised Armand's son Val (DAN FUTTERMAN) into a caring, responsible and mature young man. So when Val arrives home and announces his engagement to the daughter of an ultra-conservative U.S. Senator, what choice is there but to accept his decision with love?


Meanwhile, Senator Keeley (GENE HACKMAN) and his wife (DIANNE WIEST) are facing bigger problems than their daughter's (CALISTA FLOCKHART) unexpected engagement. The senator is watching his right-wing constituency evaporate with the scandalous demise of his closest political ally. A visit to their future in-laws could be just the thing to take the public's focus off the Keeley's messy predicament.

With the impending visit of his fiancee's rigid family, Val asks his father to straighten up the apartment just a bit. All it entails is the removal of Armand's art collection, furnishings, clothes, job ... and Albert.

Easier said than done. The arrival of the Keeleys sets off a comedy of errors as Armand and Albert attempt to play out the roles of your typical American husband and "wife."
