Lots of visual gags,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Jacques Tati Collection - Jour de fête (1949)/ Les Vacances de M. Hulot (1953)/ Mon Oncle (1958)/ Playtime (1967)/ Parade (1974) [DVD] [2009) (DVD)
I wanted these dvds because I remember seeing some of the films 50 years ago at our school film club. Have only watched one so far (Jour de Fete) but it's still funny. I'd forgotten how physically large a man Tati was. These are films in which most of the humour comes from visual gags - some slapstick, sometimes sudden and unexpected, so you need to keep watching. It was also a delight to see the simplicity of a world that is long gone, and to try to translate any of the French(often mumbled, because the humour is not in the language).
