Mr. Hulot's Holiday

Minimalism at it's best. The opening sequence at the train station is i think masterful.

A classic

I can’t believe it took me about 20 years to finally see another movie directed by Jacques Tati. To be honest, at the time, I actually didn’t care much for ‘Jour de fête’ but maybe it was because I had such huge expectations. Anyway, with this 2nd attempt, even though I did like it and even though it’s supposed to be be Tati’s best directing effort, I thought it was pretty good but st... read more

Pipe-smoking Monsieur Hulot, Jacques Tati’s endearing clown, takes a holiday at a seaside resort where his presence provokes one catastrophe after another. The first entry in the Hulot series is a masterpiece of gentle slapstick.

" Notes: Even though I did like this movie and even though it’s supposed to be be Jacques Tati’s best directing effort, I thought it was pretty good but still nothing really mind-blowing. I mean, sure, the whole thing was really sweet and clever but it was never really interesting or seriously entertaining. It is pretty obvious that Tati was some kind of French version of Charles Chaplin but the big difference was that Chaplin put so much poetry, drama in his stories and his characters, eve"

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2017 (315 movies items)

"21.12. Riemulomalla tapahtuu asioita, mutta tämä ne eivät tapahdu Keravalla tai Kouvolassa. Tatin huumori on hauskaa seurattavaa. Se saa allekirjoittaneen jopa nauramaan. Äänen, kuvan ja näyttelijöiden yhdistäminen kokonaisuuteen toimii moitteettomasti ja pidin etenkin alkukohtauksesta, jossa herra Hulot saapuu lomailemaan."
