this was amazing to watch...there was so much going on at once i feel like im going to have to watch it again just to see the little things going on in the background...i wish there would have been more of hulot in this film but one can only wish.
So far this is the only movie I have seen where the apparent (and only) traces of a story lie behind the scenery, but the latter is so gigantic that baffles, amazes and becomes the commanding presence in the movie from the very first shot. No matter how good the Blu-ray looks, this masterpiece should be seen in a theater or at least a similar big screen.
I liked Jacques Tati's first two Hulot movies, but didn't love them. I appreciate them more realizing he was working toward this. The laughs are subtle, but it’s the audacity of how they’re worked in that sets this film apart. A strange film in the best sense of the word, its style and architecture are so intricate that words don't describe. It must be seen.
Just like "Mon Oncle", This gem was a diligent film that you ever imagine about genius snap on modern age that craft with Tati's timeless , thoroughly detail , even the gimmick was sometime out-framed or even out-focused but still worth a scene. Tati was a man who love and maximized the production Value.
