The Closet (Le Placard)

synopsis


An inspiring, laugh-out-loud social comedy about an office assistant, Francois Pignon, who pretends that he is gay in order to save his job, The Closet looks at the hilarious attempts of Pignon's confused colleagues to come to terms with his hitherto secret sexuality. Written and directed by Francis Veber (Le Diner de Cons), one of French cinema's most popular and enduring directors, The Closet also boasts a roll call of truly outstanding acting talents including Daniel Auteuil and Gerard Depardieu. A smart and sassy look at sexual politics that has proved a critical and commercial hit across the world, The Closet is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

Most enjoyable. An amusing look at homophobia and the machinations of French office politics. Gerard Depardieu plays a role quite unlike any I have seen him in before which exploits his comic talent. Daniel Auteuil is wonderful as the mild mannered Pigeon coming to terms with the fact that the ex-wife he still adores is really not worth his affection. For francophiles trying not to read the sub-titles: the French is very fast and contains lots of modern slang - I picked up a lot more on my second viewing. Some great laughs. Auteuil is wonderful.
