You don’t have to be Jewish to love borscht belt humor, or gay to love camp, or French to love farce. But when all three are thrown into a blender with a dollop of generic family dysfunction, as is the case in “Let My People Go!,” oy vey doesn’t begin to address the result.
This feature film debut of French director Mikael Buch is a sendup of Jewish and gay culture and identity, which still isn’t enough to make it a novel comedy. It was ages ago that “The Birdcage” (a Hollywood remake of “La Cage aux Folles”) deftly mixed farce, gay camp, and Jewish heritage. “Let My People Go!” doesn’t come close to improving on it.
