In this enchanting debut feature, Jacques Tati stars as a fussbudget of a postman who is thrown for a loop when a traveling fair comes to his village. Tati shot this film simultaneously in black and white and in an untested color process that proved impossible to print copies of. In 1964 he re-edited it with added hand-colored footage, and in 1995 the full-color film was able to be released from the original color negatives

In this film created for Swedish television (and Tati's final film), the director himself serves as master of ceremonies at a circus. Focusing on the spectators as much as the performers, this stripped-down work is a celebration of performance and a testament to the communion between audience and entertainers

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little Gerard enjoys spending time with his uncle, Mr. Hulot, a dreamer and bohemian character who lives in an old and run-down city district. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arpel and Gerard, meanwhile live in an ultra-modern geometric house and garden, Villa Arpel, in a new suburb of Paris. Gerard’s parents are entrenched in a machine-like existence of work, fixed gender roles, the acquisition of status through possessions, and conspicuous display to impress guests. Each element of the villa is stylistically- rather than functionally-designed thus ignoring the comfort of its inhabitants. Gerard’s trips with his uncle contrast with the sterility and monotony of life with his parents. Then, Gerard’s father plans to hire Mr. Hulot at his factory and Gerard’s mother plans to match Mr. Hulot with one of the neighbor ladies.

Slapstick prevails again when Jacques Tati's eccentric, old- fashioned hero, Monsieur Hulot, is set loose in Villa Arpel, the geometric, oppressively ultramodern home of his brother-in-law, and in the antiseptic plastic hose factory where he gets a job. The second Hulot movie and Tati's first color film, Mon oncle is a supremely amusing satire of mechanized living and consumer society that earned the director the Academy Award for best foreign-language film.

Legendary French director and performance artist Jacques Tati (Mon Oncle, Playtime) gathered a couple dozen performers (musicians, acrobats, jugglers, dancers, etc.) for a live performance filmed here from multiple angles, on stage and back stage, and within which personal mini-narratives are played out. His final film, this is a celebration of everything Tati loved, especially his passion for entertaining and finding the beauty and comic possibilities that exist within all of us
