A man goes to the seaside on holiday - that's the basic plot of this comedy, but from that simple idea, this hugely inventive almost-wordless film spins out dozens of elaborate visual jokes. No-one with a sense of humour would be able to keep a straight face as Hulot tries to paint a kayak that keeps drifting out to sea, winds up right in the middle of a funeral with his flat car tyre mistaken for a wreath, and sets off a shed full of fireworks with his pipe.
