Tati is heir to the great comics of the silent era, Chaplin and Keaton and Lloyd.

Though the film is in French with English subtitles, what people say matters little. Its official language is the international patois of slapstick.

Jacques Tati's bumbling stick-bug of an alter ego is considered by many to be the funniest creation to come out of Gallic cinema.

There are some real laughs in it, but Mr. Hulot's Holiday gives us something rarer, an amused affection for human nature -- so odd, so valuable, so particular.
