Product description

Product Description

English dubbed version


A comic masterpiece from director-star Jacques Tati (Playtime, Traffic), this 1958 film--Tati's first in colour--reprises the carefree, oblivious title character from the director's hilarious international hit Mr. Hulot's Holiday. This time, the story finds Hulot, a self-involved twit on a constant collision with the physical world, grappling with 1950s-style progress. Visiting his sister and brother-in-law in their ultra-progressive household full of noisy gadgets and futuristic decor, Hulot inevitably has dust-ups with modernity, each one exceptionally funny. Taking a page from Buster Keaton's play book, Tati also employs his trademark techniques with sound and production design to achieve the indefinable, comic genius of his films: the rhythmic clacking of footsteps, the cartoon-panel distance of his camera frame from the heart of the action. (Why are funny things funnierwhen seen from a few extra feet away?) Tati is one of the cinema's great treasures, and Mon Oncle is unforgettable. --Tom Keogh
