The Gilded Cage (La Cage Doree)
Anyone who is a first or second generation member of an immigrant family will most likely have an affinity for 'The Gilded Cage'; the story of a Portuguese family in France. A family death leads to an inheritance that requires their return to Portugal but other family members, friends and associates all have an interest in preventing their departure.
This is a gentle, delightful comedy of cultures, manners and family behaviour. There are some lovely images and humorous set pieces mostly set around food and the eating thereof.
