This is one of the best known of all Jacques Tati films and over 60 years after it was made remains very funny. As with all of Tati;s films, some of the events in the background are as funny as some of those in the forefront of the film. This means that the film can be watched over and over again and it is possible to spot new things each time.
As usual, there are a series of sketches held together by a thread (in this case the holiday) which means there is the opportunity for a number of very amusing scenarios involving the car, the dining room, the beach and many others.
Having not seen this film for a number of years, I am really pleased to have this addition to my collection.

This review is based on the DVD not the film itself, which i know is great. What I'm annoyed about is that the packaging is all in chinese! No where in the description of this product did it say anything about the packaging being in a foreign language! I wanted to give this as a gift to introduce them to jacques tati film...im also worried that the subtitles will also be in Chinese!

This is an iconic film which has kept it's following for over 60 years. I first saw this film in the 1960's and have seen it numerous times since. This particular edition was cheap and for that you have to put up with Korean subtitles! ! It is my intention to buy the £20 version when I can afford it.

Priceless view of 'Old France' mixing the quirks of the human race (at that time) with some French farce but not too much to spoil it. How life has changed when you see a stressed French mother typically smacking her child near the beginning. The Brits boringly sitting out the masked ball and preferring to listen to the world news is a typical observation of Tati's. There is also a scene (car repair) in Dinan which appears to be very close to the actual beach near St Nazaire!
Despite the occasional ladled-on humour, this film has so much charm especially helped by Nathalie Pascaud as the stylish young woman.

Foreign version and edited. Although this is a film without speaking, the few subtitles that there were showed in chinese. However seller was prompt in sending and product was packaged properly.

-Les Vacances de M. Hulot (released as Monsieur Hulot's Holiday in the UK and Mr. Hulot's Holiday in the US) is a 1953 French comedy film starring and directed by Jacques Tati. It introduced the pipe-smoking, well-meaning but clumsy character of Monsieur Hulot, who appears in Tati's subsequent films, including Mon Oncle (1959), Playtime (1967), and Trafic (1971). The film gained an international reputation for its creator when released in 1953. The film was very successful as it had a total of 5,071,920 admissions in France.

--Critical response:

-On its release in the United States, Bosley Crowther's review said that the film contained "much the same visual satire that we used to get in the 'silent' days from the pictures of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and such as those." He said the film "exploded with merriment" and that Tati "is a long-legged, slightly pop-eyed gent whose talent for caricaturing the manners of human beings is robust and intense.... There is really no story to the picture.... The dialogue... is at a minimum, and it is used just to satirize the silly and pointless things that summer people say. Sounds of all sorts become firecrackers, tossed in for comical point."
-Tati biographer David Bellos has described the film as "Sublime," and said that, "It was through this film that I first fell in love with France. I think that is true of a lot of people." The journalist Simon O'Hagan, writing on the occasion of the film's 50th anniversary in 2003, wrote that the film, "might contain the greatest collection of sight gags ever committed to celluloid, but it is the context in which they are placed and the atmosphere of the film that lift it into another realm.

The description on the Amazon website did not state that this item has Japanese subtitles on it, nor did it state that the packaging writing was also in Japanese.
