A classic

3 years, 1 month ago at Dec 10 11:35
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 r... read more

"Jacques Tati's debut feature is a pure delight of gentle French humour. A small village sees the arrival of a fair which affects the locals, particularly the clumsy, yet good-natured postman. Brimming with delights and those touches that have made Tati's film not only comedy gems but there is plenty here to delight. One of those films that will bring a smile even to the most harden-hearted individual. Lovely."

"01.05. Blu-ray, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Jacques Tati The 1964 partially coloured version. If Tati's later films are controlled chaos, this is actual chaos. OK, that's a bit of a stretch, but it is a bit messy and his gags aren't as wildly inventive as they would be in his subsequent stuff. "

"20.12. Huomasin, että minulla on 11 päivää aikaa katsoa Tatin tuotanto areenasta, ennen kun se katoaa. Meneehän se loppuvuosi siis näinkin. Lystikäs Kirjeenkantaja on aikaansa edellä oleva kuvaus lorvivasta posteljoonista, joka naurattaa minua sen vuoksi, että itsekin lorvin ja välttelin siellä töitä. Kunnes huomasin, että töitä on liian paljon. Amerikan mallin mukaan posteljoonit ajavat moottoripyörillä palavien asioiden läpi ja jakavat kirjeet muutenkin rautaisella ammattit"

"8.5. (DVD/Kirjasto) Joku puoli vuotta sitten kirjastosta varaamani Jacques-boksi saapui viimein, joten nyt on sitten luvassa Tatin vatkaamista. Lystikkään kirjeenkantajan tehokkuudelle ivaava huumori tuskin naurattaa tämän päivän Suomessa ketään, joka on postilaitoksessa työskennellyt. Esimiehemme ammoin viimeisenä duunipäivänäni antama julistus: "Tästä lähin jokainen leimaa itsensä ulos käydessään vessassa.""
