Already familiar to many, especially following his acclaimed directorial debut Jour De Fete, Jacques Tati came into his own and reached new levels of popularity with 1953's Les Vacances De Monsieur Hulot. The first film to introduce his much-loved alter ego Monsieur Hulot, it sets the pattern for future appearances of the character, throwing the bumbling hero unwittingly into the middle of the action and letting the ensuing mishaps provoke humor ranging from gentle observations to fairly biting satire. The setting this time is a stuffy resort community fond of the peace and quiet that Hulot interrupts without fail. Nearly dialogue-free and driven more by episode than plot (like all of the Hulot films), standout set pieces include a disrupted funeral, an interrupted game of cards, and -- one of Tati's signature bits -- a game of tennis played with rules that can politely be called unconventional. ~ Keith Phipps, All Movie Guide

Special Features:

  • Beautiful new digital transfer, with restored image and sound
  • Video introduction by writer, director and performer Terry Jones
  • René Clément's 1936 short film, Soigne ton gauche, starring Jacques Tati
  • Optional English language soundtrack, created by Jacques Tati

M. Hulot should be a required acquired taste by funnytoo September 17, 2011 - 11:27 AM PDT
the physical hilarity, the understated exploration of the surroundings, the unforgettable figures populating this charming film are something to treasure and recommend to every Child & Adult alike - can't wait for more titles to become available on 'GreenCine'
