 Monsieur Hulot's Holiday (Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot)

 directed by Jacques Tati 

Country: France  Language: French with English subtitles

Release Date: 1953

Runtime: 87 minutes Colour: Black & White  Classification: G


The film which introduced the world to Jacques Tati's famous clown - the bemused and awkward Monsieur Hulot.  Upon arriving for a holiday, M Hulot manages to turn a sleepy seaside resort upside down; catastrophe follows catastrophe as he stumbles down a gentle path of chaos. Tati's tightly choreographed satire of the idle bourgeoisie and their determination to enjoy themselves is regarded as one of the most influential slapstick comedies of all time. 

" When has a film so subtly and yet so completely captured nostalgia for past happiness? The movie is about the simplest of human pleasures: The desire to get away for a few days, to play instead of work, to breathe in the sea air, and maybe meet someone nice. It is about the hope that underlies all vacations, and the sadness that ends them. And it is amused, too, that we go about our days so intently, while the sea and the sky go about theirs." Roger Ebert.
