Mr. Hulot's Holiday (Not Rated)

French with English subtitles

While on holiday at a seaside resort, Monsieur Hulot—Jacques Tati's endearing, pipe-smoking clown—finds his presence provoking one catastrophe after another as his attempts to relax are thwarted at every turn by the caprices of fellow vacationers and the whims of nature and mischance. A wildly funny satire of vacationers determined to enjoy themselves, the first entry in the popular Hulot series includes a series of brilliantly choreographed sight gags about boats, dogs, tennis and other hazards of leisure. We are proud to present this masterpiece of gentle slapstick in a new 35mm restoration.
