Le Placard Reviews:

Anyone who dismisses foreign movies as too abstract or intellectual could see this one; it functions no differently than any American comedy. (By American comedy, I'm speaking of films like the better Coen Brothers or Woody Allen comedies and not mass-produced garbage like "White Chicks".) Many times I fully forgot it was in French and that I was reading subtitles.Daniel Auteuil is nice in this charming film. His sad-sack loser is reminiscent of William H. Macy's most popular roles, or perhaps Jack Lemmon in "The Apartment".Everything goes wrong for François Mignon. Neither his wife, who left him two years before, nor his teenage son will have anything to do with him. He is ignored at work, and finds out through the grapevine that he has been fired.His next-door neighbor talks him out of suicide and comes up with a plan to save his job: if Mignon pretends to be gay, the company will not wish to look homophobic by firing him.This plan works perfectly, and Mignon is thrown into a number of increasingly ridiculous situations, actually that he is reputed to be gay.The movie wraps up quickly and ties together almost too neatly, but the ending fits the quick paced comic style of everything before it. Overall, this is an entertaining and heartwarming film.


This amiable and amusing movie is delicious as it plays around with political correctness, homophobia, machismo, and business management.The dull-witted and just plain dull main hero keeps his job by pretending to be gay -- at the recommendation of a neighbor who is an industrial psychologist that once lost his own job BECAUSE he is gay. With that premise, the movie is off to a unbelievable series of misunderstandings and revelations as our character discovers a nice deal about life, folks around him, and most of all, himself. The fact that all of this takes zone is a very prim, high-tech condom factory makes the comedy all the more lively.I wasn't expecting the lift that the movie gave me. It has a flimsy giddiness about it lacking in most comedies about being gay or straight or anything else. See it if you receive a chance.


This is a delicious hero study and social commentary masquerading as a broad farce. It is very, very funny. They avoid cheap "queer" jokes and cheap "homophobe" jokes even as they bluntly portray attitudes about homosexuals. Even though they test very true language to illustrate the attitudes. There is some nice acting throughout. Every of the characters is a study in itself. The homophobic hero (Depardieu) emerges as intriguing and sympathetic, where it should have been two dimensional. The relationship between Auteil and Aumont almost brought me to tears. The transformation of the lead hero is believable, despite the improbable context that the movie creates. The final stage with his ex-wife is powerful. Others have pointed out that the lead hero never changes, the perceptions of others change. This makes his current transformation that much more effective. This film is a true find.
