Louis Perrault in Monsieur Hulot's Holiday

Monsieur Hulot's Holiday

1954 NR

Jacques Tati follows his acclaimed directorial debut Jour de Fête with this gentle satire that introduced Tati's alter ego, Monsieur Hulot. When Hulot spends a holiday at a seaside resort, he accidentally wreaks good-natured havoc wherever he goes. Falling all over himself to impress a beautiful girl, Hulot inadvertently crashes a funeral, topples a priceless vase and ignites fireworks with his pipe -- all to hilarious effect.
