The quirky Monsieur Hulot visits Paris to spend time with his nephew in this funny satire of postwar modernism and consumerism.

The film features little dialogue, and an English version was made concurrently. It was highly popular for a foreign film in the U.S., and won that year's foreign language Oscar. This appears to be Alain Bécourt's sole performance.

I liked Jacques Tati especially his 'Mr Hulot's Holiday' in which a boy actor appears briefly I think.
Thanks, 'nightwatcher' for the pics and 'diogenes' for the pic of Tati off set with the delightful Alain Becourt.    Cheesy
