Tati’s Monsieur Hulot makes a starry-eyed wander around an increasingly modish France, as monuments to concrete and glass dwarf the past and baffle the present. Making use of a fantastical, budget-busting 60s-Paris set and a stunning cinemascope frame, this visual comedy of manners and modernity is a stylistic, satirical interpretation of contemporary folly.
