    For Director, writer and actor, Tati, this outing as M. Hulot won him '58's Best Foreign language Film Oscar. A young boy prefers the company of his clumsy uncle than staying at his gadget-ridden house. Tati pokes fun at the excessive use if technology without being mean, and the mostly-quiet humour and visual style allow for always-funny visual gags. A very funny, lighthearted, feel-good film. I give it a 4.5/5.

    Hulot had to have been an inspiration for the character of Clouseau. Great garden party scene in this clever, sometimes funny knock against materialism and its dehumanizing effects.

    Yet another great film. Its a hard call between this and Playtime as my favorite Tatifilm. The chrome, the shine, the plastic, the modernistic flare of an era that radiateswith each scene. The gadgetry, especially the fish fountain is brilliant. That kitchenwas way above its time. Its non stop entertainment. Am grateful TCM introduced me to both works of the bumbling-stumbling Hulot.

    KOCOI love the wonder and feel of the movie....non stop comedy. I grew up in the 1950's. The visual is the post WWII UBER FUTURISTIC EUROPEAN MODERN, which followed the prewar Art Deco. The trophy of the successful Euro Businessman was the Great American Automobile. This continued through the 1960's. Tati captures this obsession. My uncle was the president of USSTEEL at this time. As a businessman of the day you are, what you own and have. The envy of everyone. Hulot is oblivious to this self important owning world. Hulot's world revolves around people, like his nephew.

    I love this flick. The diversity of the old and the new never stop amazing you throughout this film. This truly is a flick worth watching. I've often wondered if it was a take on the Americana that hit its all time high in the mid to late fifties with the house.
