"A wonderful comedy." -Los Angeles Times
One of "the most successful foreign films ever shown in the U.S." (The Wall Street Journal), this "wildly hilarious" (Independent Film Journal) French farce is giddy, unpretentious and an entirely lovable film" (Time Magazine)!
When young Laurent returns to exotic St. Tropez, he bears big news for his beloved father, Renato. Laurent has found the girl of his dreams and they are engaged! What's more, she and her family are on their way over for dinner at Renato's home to meet the in-laws-to-be. This traditional meeting of families seems typical, but because this ultraconservative family will be expecting to meet Renato and wife, they'll never be prepared for the shock of meeting Renato and his flamboyant, campy, outrageous lover - and drag-queen - Albin! So in a great effort to please his son, Renato asks Albin for the performance of a lifetime...setting up an unforgettable evening that is charged and ready to detonate an explosion of zaniness and absurdity.
