Tati’s beloved Monsieur Hulot finds himself in a futuristic funhouse of modern architecture and traffic jams as his once familiar Paris progresses uncontrollably. Hulot adapts to his new surroundings like a fish out of water, which, of course sets the stage for his charming and irresistible clumsiness. Utilizing astonishing sets and brilliant sound design, Tati achieves new levels of visual and aural complexity. (USA, 1967, 35mm, 124 min., subtitled)
