Not one of Tati's better works
24 July 2001 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Cours du soir is a sometimes funny Tati short, but it's own format harms it quite a bit. The film is of Tati teaching a night class how to mime as he does. It's not too funny watching Tati mime in front of a class. The tennis and horse riding bits are sort of lame. The postmen skit was done much better in the earlier short School for Postmen. The only really good thing in the film is his fisherman sketch. Otherwise, it's not too great. Nice to watch if you are a Tati fan. 6/10.
