Funny short film
13 May 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Jacques Tati is very funny in this short film. Most of the scenes are used again in «Jour de fête» (1948), a full feature film.

François (played by Tati) is the local postman somewhere in rural France. He wants to be as fast as the American postmen!

Very funny movie that reminded me of some classic Chaplin performances from the 20's.

Out of 100, I gave it 80. That's *** on a four stars rating system.
