Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday

Monsieur Hulot's Holiday

France | 1953 | 87 min. | Jacques Tati

July 12 - 15, 2024

Monsieur Hulot, Jacques Tati’s endearing clown, takes a holiday at a seaside resort, where his presence provokes one catastrophe after another. Tati’s masterpiece of gentle slapstick is a series of effortlessly well-choreographed sight gags involving dogs, boats, and firecrackers; it was the first entry in the Hulot series and the film that launched its maker to international stardom. New restoration.
