In the tradition of French cross-dressing comedies like LA CAGE AUX FOLLES comes MY WIFE MAURICE (MA FEMME...S'APPELLE MAURICE). Director Jean-Marie Poiré (who also made the French comedy THE VISITORS) brings to the film a frantic comedic pace, colorful visuals, and sense of the absurd that has been compared to early Almodovar. When a philanderer's spurned mistress follows him back to Paris to confront him and his wife, the womanizer panics. He manages to convince a humanitarian worker to dress up in drag to shock his angry mistress and scare her away. What he doesn't foresee is that his initial plan cascades into a flood of misunderstandings and comic situations, and he just digs himself a deeper and deeper hole. The famous French comic duo of Régis Laspalès and Philippe Chevaillier star in the film, which has been shown at gay and lesbian film festivals around the world.
