A classic

To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch the damned thing at some point. Basically, in France, in 1995, there was a big celebration about the fact that cinema was existing already for 100 years and, through the whole year, they displayed some old classics in my city which was pretty neat.

“To be honest, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should probably re-watch the damned thing at some point. Basically, in France, in 1995, there was a big celebration about the fact that cinema was existing already for 100 years and, through the whole year, they displayed some old classics in my city which was pretty neat. Well, that’s when I saw this movie and since it had a rather stellar reputation, I was really eager to check it out and I had some rather high expectations. Well, eventually, even though it was indeed a decent watch, to be honest, it didn’t really blow me away and I thought it was actually fairly disappointing. I don’t know, at a very young age, I started to watch Charles Chaplin’s work, I basically grew up with his movies, ever since I have bee” read more

"In his 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. Even in this early work, Tati was brilliantly toying with the devices (silent visual gags, minimal yet deftly deployed sound effects) and exploring the theme (the absurdity of our increasing reliance on technology) that would define his cinema."

"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."

"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."
