Cine : Monsieur Hulot’s holiday


Taking a vacation at a seaside resort in Brittany, confirmed bachelor Monsieur Hulot creates unintentional havoc among the hotel guests with his well-meaning but terribly clumsy antics.

As with all the best slapstick, Tati’s theme is the cruelty of the physical world. Nothing in Monsieur Hulot acts quite how it ought to. Every object has a mind of its own – from the canoe that folds in half while being rowed, to the foxskin rug that attaches itself to Hulot’s foot – and each appears to be intent on causing as many pratfalls, bumps and bruises as possible.

French with English subtitles
