Hilarious, inventive, and gloriously choreographed, Jacques Tati’s sublime comedic masterpiece thrusts the endearingly clumsy, resolutely old-fashioned Monsieur Hulot, along with a host of other lost souls, into a bafflingly modernist Paris.
“Jacques Tati is the king of the slow joke. The way those movies unfold are just so perfect. I always thought of Mattel as existing slightly in Jacques Tati’s world.” – Greta Gerwig
