Poster for M. Hulot's Holiday

Legendary French filmmaker and actor Jacques Tati's 1953 comedy, his second film and the first to feature his lurching, overcoat-wearing, pipe-smoking creation, Monsieur Hulot. Cannes and Oscar nominated, the story follows Hulot as he visits the beachside for a vacation and accidentally (but good-naturedly) causes havoc.

Tati's bumbling stick-bug of an alter ego is considered by many to be the funniest creation to come out of Gallic cinema.

There are some real laughs in it, but it gives us something rarer, an amused affection for human nature -- so odd, so valuable, so particular.

Much imitated but never bettered, this affectionate lampoon of human nature is simply one of the best and most important films ever made.

It's this grace under pressure that makes Hulot such a lovable character and "Monsieur Hulot's Holiday" the best film of Tati's far from prolific career.
