Summary
  • Jour de fête: In this enchanting debut feature, Jacques Tati stars as a fussbudget of a postman who is thrown for a loop when a traveling fair comes to his village.
  • Monsieur Hulot's holiday: Monsieur Hulot takes a holiday, at a seaside resort, where his presence provokes one catastrophe after another.
  • Mon oncle: A supremely amusing satire of mechanized living and consumer society.
  • Playtime: A nearly wordless comedy about confusion in an age of high technology.
  • Trafic: The bumbling Monsieur Hulot, outfitted with tan raincoat, beaten brown hat, and umbrella, takes to Paris's highways and byways.
