The gentle, summer day, relaxation of Tati’s first two films remains, but now is added a commentary on consumerism and modern industrial life. The film doesn’t lose the easy-going nostalgic warmness of the others, and Mr. Hulot is back giving us a funny, bumbling protagonist. The sight gags are also the best they’ve been so far. It’s interesting to see Tati go in new directions with this one. Very pleasant.
