Co-presented by UCLA Film & Television Archive

In a delightfully slapstick sendup of modern living, the bumbling Monsieur Hulot, beloved by his young nephew Gerard, inadvertently wreaks havoc as he grapples with the automated gadgets in the ultramodern home of his brother-in-law. (France, 1958, Dir. J. Tati, 35 mm, color, 116 min.)
