The Cage

A Feature film by Pierre Granier-Deferre

Produced by Lira Films, Parma Films, Ugc

Release in France : 11/06/1975

    Synopsis

    This unusual film contains some dark elements of comedy as it tells the tale of an ex-wife who is suddenly visited by her estranged ex-husband. Though she is a loving woman, she does crave revenge. The ex-hubby wants to buy her country house, which she received in the divorce settlement. Instead he finds himself locked in a cage in the cellar. She professes her abiding love, despite everything. He tells her that he left because she was too possessive. The crazy woman gets her due when, after letting the house fill up with gas, she accidentally blows herself up when the postman bearing her alimony check rings her doorbell.
