Directed by Jacques Tati
France, 1958
Comedy

Synopsis

Set loose in a society of baudy materialism, our favorite anti-hero, Monsieur Hulot is back. He explores the oppressively tricked-out bourgeouis home of his sister and causes all sorts of trouble at the antiseptic plastic hose factory where he gets a job.
