The Closet (2001)

3 Stars (out of 4)

Coming Out to Play

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

I hated director Francis Veber's last film, the annoying bedroom farce The Dinner Game, which didn't even have the courage to go through with its core idea. But Veber's delightful new film The Closet (a.k.a. Le Placard), boasts courage and more. The great Daniel Auteuil plays a dull accountant in danger of losing his job until his new next-door neighbor comes up with a plan; Auteuil will pretend to be gay. Veber handles the material with the utmost conviction and taste, and ends up with a hilarious and potent tale of judgments and perceptions. Gerard Depardieu also stars.
