Tati's first color film, Mon Oncle again features Monsieur Hulot in another series of minimal-dialog and slapstick gags that paved the way for Mr Bean 32 years later. Be sure to watch all the extra features on the accompanying disc!

A powerful comment on modern life, machine world, and suburbia. Shows the contrast between the chaos of old urban life and the new with pretentious straight lines.

Jacques Tati was a cinematic genius, the film is remarkably and beautifully composed, scene by scene, shot by shot, in both time and space. At times it is almost kabuki. He was a true cinematic visionary genius and deeply funny to boot.

You do not need to understand French for this Tati's movie. 1960 humour but still funny. Better than Mr Hulot and an older version of Mr Bean.

Sweet, funny and beautiful to look at.

This is a wonderful movie, like all of Jacques Tatie's work. It is an amused observation of the conflict between modern and traditional life, and is bittersweet in its conclusions. Don't expect laugh-out-loud humour, it is quieter and deeper. The sound design is exceptional as well (especially the secretary's footsteps...)

Think of a gentler, kinder Mr. Bean. His friendship with his nephew finally rubs off on the boy's father to the delight of all concerned.
