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.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
