Storyline

Monsieur Hulot goes on a holiday to a seaside resort, but accidents and misunderstandings follow him where ever he goes. The peace and quiet of the hotel guests don't last very long with Hulot around, because although his intensions are good, they always turn out catastrophically.

Quotes

Opening Titles: Mr. Hulot is off for a week by the sea. Take a seat behind his camera, and you can spend it with him. Don't look for a plot, for a holiday is meant purely for fun, and if you look for it, you will find more fun in ordinary life than in fiction.

A masterpiece of gentle slapstick!!!!!!!!!!!!
5 September 2001 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

Pipe smoking Monsieur Hulot,Jacques Tati´s endearing clown takes a holiday at a seaside resort where his presence provokes one catastrophe after another.

If you going to watch Tati I think you should start with this. It´s one of the funniest movies ever made.

Beautiful filmed in black and white.And there are almost no talk in this film.It´s like a silent film.

RATING: 5/5
