[VIDEO ESSAY] There is an innocent nostalgia and precious regard for all things whimsical and romantic in the films of Jacques Tati. There is also a certain je ne sais quoi that is innately French.

The film has a gentle sense of whimsy, and its observations on life's little annoyances-like the distracting clunk of a set of swinging doors-are benign.

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.

A great introduction to the work of Tati, who made only a few movies but is rightly recognized as one of the great visionary directors.

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.

By the end, Tati has evoked the place with such grace and lulling humor that we wouldn't mind staying there.

M. Hulot's Holiday is an unalloyed delight of a movie! It's rarely hysterically funny, but it is constantly charming.
