"Gai dimanche" is the third short in which Tati plays, he's still acting like in music halls, moving speedly and even talking clearly in less large shots than his long movies. As Tati and Rhum try to make money on touring tourists in parisian suburb in a damaged bus, they improvise everything as the catastrophic lunch. At that time, Tati observed a lot around his native house in Le Pecq and in "Gai dimanche", he shot in places he knew very well. There are some gags that will later be used in his masterpieces. I wish we could see more of this Tati's music hall era; like the sequence on youtube in which he compares a british cop and a french cop. That doesn't mean I do not appreciate his movies, they are fabulous, but there is a huge part of Tati's genius we totally ignore.
