A film by Jacques Tati
Starring Jacques Tati, Barbara Dennek and Rita Maiden
The celebrated Jacques Tati directs and stars in this brilliantly eccentric ode to humanity. Tati plays Monsieur Hulot, a Parisian who’s befuddled by the changes he witnesses in his beloved city, which has grown increasingly touristy.
As Hulot roams the uncomfortably modern Paris with a group of American tourists, his story epitomizes the struggle of modern man to maintain a soul in the face of an impersonal world.
Monsieur Hulot has to contact an American official in Paris, but he gets lost in the maze of modern architecture which is filled with the latest technical gadgets.
