Why Did Tati Do It?
19 June 2017 | by abenrSee all my reviews

In "Cours du Soir" a dim-witted acting instructor teaches acting to a class of equally dim-witted students. This might work well on paper, but the movie is awful. I don't know how Jacques Tati, a master of film and comedy.could have made it, acted in it, and had his name attached to it, unless a gun was held to his head for the entire project. Incidentally, the title has been mis-translated as "Evening Classes." It should be "Evening Class." The French word "cours" serves as both the singular and plural. It's clear only one class is being taught here.
