Jacques Tati’s classic, Mon oncle (1958).

Dear All,


Please join us for the next meeting of the French and Francophone Film Working Group, this Thursday, September 15th at 6 pm in the French Library (4229 Dwinelle). Our first screening and discussion of the semester will be Jacques Tati’s classic, Mon oncle (1958).


“Slapstick prevails again when Jacques Tati’s eccentric, old-fashioned hero, Monsieur Hulot, is set loose in Villa Arpel, the geometric, oppressively ultramodern home of his brother-in-law, and in the antiseptic plastic hose factory where he gets a job. The second Hulot movie and Tati’s first color film, Mon oncle is a supremely amusing satire of mechanized living and consumer society that earned the director the Academy Award for best foreign-language film.”

–Criterion Collection


Runtime 116 minutes. Wine and snacks will be provided.


We hope to see you there!

Vanessa, Aubrey, and Matthew
