Synopsis

When the socially awkward Monsieur Hulot (Jacques Tati, who also wrote and directed the film) visits Paris to spend some time with his adored 9-year-old nephew (Alain Bécourt) he finds himself struggling with postwar France's infatuation with modern architecture, mechanical efficiency and consumerism.

A great movie. Becourt is great especially when he is out with his friends gambling on who's going to run in the lamppole and other crazy things boys do at that age. One thing I cannot figure out in this film is the vendor selling, out in the middle of a field with nobody around; except these kids of course.

Also see Tati's wonderful earlier film M. Hulot's Holiday.
