The Closet

Hilarious farce from Francis Veber ('The Dinner Game') in which Daniel Auteuil, a boring accountant, is told that he's been fired from his job. As he's about to end it all, psychologist neighbour Michel Aumont suggests a scheme involving Auteuil declaring he's gay to get his job back. This "revelation" throws those around him, including macho, homophobic co-worker Gerard Depardieu, into a tizzy.
