Directed by David Frank
Here's classic comedy with a French twist. Welcome to the drawing rooms of Gay Paree. To the household of Orgon, a rich bourgeois who's become a bigot and prude in middle age. One ridiculously laughable dude.
His family's up in arms over Tartuffe, a flimflam man of criminal bent whose current facade of religious fervor has Orgon totally bamboozled. All in the family, including the maid, get in on the act, trying to warn their master. He's being taken for all he's worth by this shifty devil. What an hilarious disaster.
Wait'll you catch the scene where Orgon's own wife is used as bait to entrap this lascivious rat, who's blinded by his own irrepressible lust for her. Delight in the bite of the spoken word. Ogle at the sight of breathtaking costumes. Your kids will definitely dig it. The villainy at play.
