The Foreign Film Group – ‘Les Vacance de Monsieur Hulot’ (France, 1953)
About the film
When the ever-hapless Monsieur Hulot decides to vacation at a beautiful seaside resort, rest and relaxation don’t last long, given the gangly gent’s penchant for ridiculous antics. While simply out to enjoy himself, the well-meaning Hulot inevitably stumbles into numerous misadventures, including an utterly disastrous attempt at playing tennis, as he encounters fellow French vacationers from various social classes, as well as foreign tourists.
