Mon Oncle (My Uncle)
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.
