'La Cage aux Folles' - The Birdcage
After a novel by Amélie Nothomb / from the French Brigitte Große
The business traveler Jérôme Angust is approached in the concourse of a train station by an intrusive stranger. All attempts to abolish the troublemaker are doomed to failure. Reluctantly, Jérôme finally engages in a conversation with the stranger, who introduces himself as Textor Texel. He only wants one thing: that Jérôme listens to him.
What begins as an absurdly bizarre life story of a seemingly harmless spinner, leads in a whirlwind of rapid exchanges of words directly into the blackest depths of the human psyche.
Because Textor reveals his darkest secret to his involuntary listener - and that has much more to do with Jérôme than he is fond of ...
