    I have been re watching Tati, one by one, these last months. I'm not a fan of predictable, silly humor, like Dumb and Dumber. This however I find funny and charming and beautiful! How I wish Tati made more films. He had such a wonderful eye for the comic side of things we take for granted. And just imagine what he could have done with our modern world today. Where is the modern version of Tati??? We need him/her!!!

    I loved how this film ends where his next film, Play Time begins, at the airport. Is Play Time maybe the story of what happened after Hulot steps of the plain he took in this one?

    Filled to the brink with the elaborate comedic set pieces Tati is renowned for. A masterpiece of wit and choreography. 7 years 9 months ago
