    First time viewing this, and I'd already say that this is the most ingenious comedy I've ever seen 2 years 11 months ago

    I'm glad I saw Mr. Hulot's Holiday before this, as Tati's style takes some serious getting used to. But once I got what he was doing (about halfway through Holiday), it became a joy. Here we get the same plot-less, character-less stroll through everyday life, with mild sight gags everywhere, and every frame stuffed full of details. It's got almost a silent comedy vibe, only the focus isn't on blunt slapstick, but friendly observations. I think this one is better constructed than Holiday. The glass-walled, technology-driven aesthetic was great. The first act in the building was an absolute blast. The scene with the glass-walled apartment buildings and the televisions was cool too. And the dinner scene, while the most complex and detail-rich, went on a few minutes too long. Loved the carnival finale. I've really never seen anything else like Tati's films, but I'm anxious to see more. 4 years 9 months ago
