Overview

Head on a seaside holiday with Monsieur Hulot, Jacques Tati’s infamous clown. The first entry in the beloved Hulot series which included Mon Oncle (1958), Playtime (1967) and Trafic (1971), Monsieur Hulot's Holiday sees the overcoat-wearing, pipe-wielding, accident-prone character (played by Tati himself) stumble through a series of comic setpieces, where his very presence seems to initiate one disaster after another. As Hulot settles in for the summer in the French coastal resort of Saint-Marc-sur-Mer, no dog, fishing boat, or unsuspecting local is spared in his innocent path of destruction. An expertly choreographed slapstick classic, Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday sends up the tranquil ideal of a summer vacation with tremendous style and ingenuity.

Why You Should See This Film

Essential for all comedy nerds, Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday is slapstick in its finest, most pure form. Hailed by André Bazin of French cinema bible Cahiers du Cinéma as “the most important comic work in world cinema since the Marx Brothers” upon its 1953 release, the film’s reputation has continued to grow, and has been included on lists of the best comedies (and best films!) of all time by the likes of BBC and Empire.
