Monsieur Hulot's Holiday
(Jacques Tati, 1953).
Tati's Hulot is an amiable bachelor who spends his summer holidays at a small Breton seaside resort where he inadvertently triggers a series of marvelously droll mishaps. There's hardly any dialogue in this French comic masterpiece, the gentle humor residing in the body language and the imaginatively organized sound track.
