Jacques Tati was France's answer to Buster Keaton, or Charlie Chaplin. His films were made in the era of sound, but the sight gag still rules. In this Oscar-winning comedy, he plays the hapless Monsier Hulot, who visits his sister and is baffled by her state-of-the-art home - he soon comes to resent society's technological advances. Hulot spends time with his nephew in a bid to preserve the traditional culture he believes is slipping away...
Life in a slow, quiet French village is just fine for Francois the postman, until his insight into the rapid US post leads him to update his delivery.
