Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Ah, M. Hulot. I wish I could put into words why I love those movies so much. I'll borrow something that Levon Helm once said about Van Morrison - "It's like pulling off a pair of tight boots after a long day."
Les Vacances de M. Hulot...or as I call it The Bellboy for eggheads. When we're talking Tati go immediately to Playtime, his ne plus plus...
Interesting. I've long said that Tati was Jerry Lewis with taste just too good for his own good. 'Play Time' is his masterpiece, no doubt, but I think I like his previous work more than thou.
Some intriguing parallels between these two, both made their first features about the same time, 48-49ish, and both bottomed out at the same time in the early 70s at which time BOTH ended up making half-baked films in Sweden!
