Dir. Jacques Tati (1958).
Tati's first film in color is an engaging attempt to involve his bumbling hero Hulot in the perils of contemporary life by letting him loose in a dreadful ultra-modern gadget-laden house. Wry sight gags flow non stop. Winner of Best Foreign Film Oscarand certainly deserving it.
