"I bought that Criterion Tati-box from B&N during the sale so let's get cracking. This isn't exactly a favorite as of yet, because I can't quite appreciate the milieu it presents. When Tati isn't on screen and it's just the village doing village-y things it can get quite dull, but holy crap, when they crank up the comedy, it's amazing. One of my favorite things was definitely delivering mail up a horse's ass and calling it "American style!""

"Watched : 22.7.2012 (YLE Teema) Olenko jotenkin tylsä kun tälläinen slaptstick huumori ei vaan oikein naurata , oli kyllä hienoa katsoa tämä elokuva mutta minun se ei oikein iskenyt "

"31.1. Hyväntahtoista hassuttelua, joka ei jaksa kiinnostaa minkään vertaa, vaikka Tatin huumorista normaalisti pidänkin. Normaalisti se vain on ympäristöä hyödyntävää ja jollain tavalla ainutlaatuista, mutta tässä elokuvassa huumori on suurimmaksi osaksi tyyliin kieroon katselua kameraa kohti tai vähän hupsua kaatuilua."

"8.1 Rento ja katsojan huumaava maaseutukiertoajelu. Ei niin hauska mitä luulla saattaisi. Ei tästä nyt muuta keksi enää, paitsi että kamera-ajot olivat suhtkoht hienoja."

"17.2 DVD Lystikäs kirjeenkantaja on lystikäs elokuva. Kaikki on kohdallaan, mutta on visuaalisesti ainakin aikaansa nähden erikomeaa jälkeä. Tällaiset elokuvat sopivat helppoutensa ansiosta niin lapsille kuin aikuisillekin. Ajaton elokuva, muttei kuitenkaan erityisesti erottuva mestariteos."

"14.04 Rewatch Pieni, ystävällinen mestariteos, jonka komediallisen kuoren alla piilee syvä viisaus. Eräs parhaista."

"François, the postman is as interesting character as Mr. Hulot in my opinion. In the end he learns finally that you don't necessarily have to be so modern. When the old ways work, what's the point changing them to new ones?"
