1953. France. Dir: Jacques Tati. With Tati. 87 min.
All sorts of small-scale mishaps arise from a clumsy vacationer’s wanderings through a seaside resort in this inventive and meticulously constructed physical comedy. Director/star Tati (PLAYTIME) crafts a gentle satire of people and their pleasure-seeking, with quiet observational humor, subtle sight gags, and charming cinematic absurdity.
Tonight, September 22. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.
