rural and funny first film from Jacques Tati
on 12 January 2017
Gentle , rural and funny first film from Jacques Tati , rather Chaplin influenced in places , but the Tati magic is already very much at work . He plays a bumbling village postman , briefly and drunkenly inspired to "modernize" his postal routine . Like all Tati's films , it reveals subtle touches with each viewing . The faded colour effect only adds to its appeal .
