Alliance Française French Film Festival: Jour de Fête

Sat, Mar 17 / 3 pm
Directed by Jacques Tati
1949, France, 70 min

In his enchanting debut feature, the brilliant silent French comedian Jacques Tati stars as a fussbudget of a postman who is thrown for a loop when a traveling fair comes to his village. Even in this early work, Tati was brilliantly toying with the devices (silent visual gags, minimal yet deftly deployed sound effects) and exploring the theme (the absurdity of our increasing reliance on technology) that would define his cinema.

Plays With:

Hydro-Lévesque  
Directed by Matthew Rankin
2008, Canada, 16 min

Only the electrifying courage and love of Québec nationalism can save Winnipeg from itself.

Sponsored by Alliance Francaise du Manitoba.

Reviews

Jacques Tati’s classic 1949 French comedy is charming, funny, good natured and generous spirited. A revered world cinema masterpiece and necessary viewing. - Derek Winnert The originality of its design makes Tati’s cinema unfold as it it were a series of Looney Tunes episodes envisioned by Robert Altman.
- Eric Kohn, NY Press
