This one tries to assemble Tati style gags around a camping site.
They cross cut the activities of holidaying couples - star duo Gambling and Madeiros off chasing a runaway kite, a family drilled to mount a tent on the whistle, bearded guys making off with the wallet of the man, who has been left tied by a dominatrix. Best gag is the a couple in the tiny home, playing scrabble. Her tender word is converted into an aggressive one by him, leaving her to replace the blacked out rectangles in an erotica book with her own stick on insets.
Fair scope filming. Attempts to eliminate dialogue are often pretty laboured - one sided 'phone calls etc. With this one short on good gags or endearing characters, the beach side atmosphere is the best element.
