FRENCH FAVORITES FOR BASTILLE DAY
Jacques Tati Double Feature!
THE BIG DAY / M. HULOT'S HOLIDAY
Co-presented by the French Film and TV office, French Consulate in Los Angeles
THE BIG DAY
JOUR DE FETE
1949, Janus Films, 79 min, France, Dir: Jacques Tati

Jacques Tati’s feature directorial debut is a priceless showcase for his comedic talents, as he plays a mailman attempting to streamline delivery in his small town. He soon finds his attempts at modernization and a coinciding Bastille Day celebration don’t mix. In French with English subtitles.


35 mm!

M. HULOT'S HOLIDAY
LES VACANCES DE MONSIEUR HULOT
1953, Janus Films, 85 min, France, Dir: Jacques Tati

Director Jacques Tati’s first film starring Monsieur Hulot finds the irascible Frenchman on vacation in a petite resort town. Hulot attempts to keep his slapstick clumsiness at bay and to blend in with the hilariously habituated bourgeoisie, but with little success. In French with English subtitles.


Screening formats: DCP (THE BIG DAY), 35mm (M. HULOT'S HOLIDAY)
