Summary
Renato and Albin are a middle-aged couple, who are the managers and star performers at a glitzy drag club in St. Tropez, agree to hide their sexual identities, along with their flamboyant personalities and home decor, when the parents of Renato's son's fiancě come for a visit. But with its hilarious performances and ahead-of-its-time social message, there's nothing like the audacious, dazzling original movie
