Description

Jacques Tati is one of the great comic icons of French cinema, a Gallic equivalent of Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton. This exclusive box set brings together his four masterpieces available for the first time - all beautifully restored, plus a collection of bonus rarely seen Tati film shorts.

JOUR DE FETE
Jacques Tati plays the role of a mailman in a small French village in his first feature film. After viewing a film about efficiency in the American postal system, the mailman decides to upgrade his archaic means of delivering mail.

MR. HULOT'S HOLIDAY
Pipe-smoking Monsieur Hulot, Jacques Tati's endearing clown, takes a holiday at a seaside resort where his presence provokes one catastrophe after another. The first entry in the Hulot series is a masterpiece of gentle slapstick.

MON ONCLE
Jacques Tati’s eccentric hero Monsieur Hulot is let loose in the ultramodern home of his sister and in an antiseptic factory that manufactures plastic hose. Slapstick prevails in the second entry of the Hulot series, a delightful satire of mechanized living.

PLAYTIME
The endearingly clumsy Monsieur Hulot wanders through modernist Paris trying to reconcile the old-fashioned ways with the confusion of the encroaching age of technology.

Special Features:

* New Digital Transfer, With Restored Image And Sound
* New And Improved English Subtitles
* Three short films directed by or starring Jacques Tati: Soigne Ton Gauche, L'Ecole des Facteurs and Cours du Soir.
* Original Theatrical Trailers For Playtime, Mon Oncle And Les Vacancies De Monsieur Hulot
