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.

[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.

As lazy and disjointed as Mr. Hulot's Holiday seems, you know Tati worked out every small detail in advance.

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.

There's also an unforced feel that makes it unlike nearly any other screen comedy.

A genial plotless comedy based on silent-screen slapstick and pantomine routines.

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

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

the retro feel that the passing decades have bestowed upon it may make it even more enjoyable today than it was in 1953.

Tati's comic rhythms are graceful and almost elegant, heavily reliant on strict timing and careful composition.
