Directed by Jacques Tati
You might recall that I absolutely tore M. Hulot's Holiday to shreds. While this isn't exactly a sequel, the character of M. Hulot is once again the star and I die a little inside.
Last time, I had absolutely no idea what Tati was going for with his film. This time, I get the distinct impression that he is trying to imitate Modern Times and that he wants M. Hulot to be as lovable and recognizable as the Tramp.
Once again, this probably around 60% of this movie is silent. This, of course, would be okay if the silent parts were halfway interesting. Unfortunately, I was terribly bored and spent the entire film wondering if the list makers get some sort of perverse pleasure in testing me.
Anyway, it is a cheap imitation of Chaplin and Chaplin is superior in every way.
RATING: *---- (I will give it one because I did like it better than M. Hulot's Holiday; this isn't saying much)
Wow, I got nothing with this one. Here's a clip:
