Monday Night Movies: Mon Oncle

Visual wit, Gallic charm and smart slapstick prevail 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, in some ways seeming a contemporary update of Chaplin’s MODERN TIMES. It earned the director an Academy Award for best foreign-language film. 1958. Unrated. 116 Min
