Mon Oncle


The other night we were delighted by the movie Mon Oncle.
Jacques Tati portrays a man who lives a happy life in the perfectly imperfect traditional Paris which is juxtaposed against the imperfectly perfect modern Paris that his sister, brother-in-law and nephew live in.
The movie features many funny and amusing scenes, and also offers up an intriguing critique of traditional Parisian life compared to modern Parisian life.
Besides starring in Mon Oncle, Jacques Tati also was the movie's writer, director and producer!
The d.v.d that we rented also included the short Jacques Tati movie L'Ecole des Facteurs which also proved to be a delight.
