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.
A resource to support primary Into Film Club members watch, discuss and review French films.
The harsh sterility of modern Paris is lampooned as Monsieur Hulot becomes lost with American tourists in a glass and steel maze.
