In his first feature film, Jacques Tati plays a bumbling postman whose daily routine is disrupted when a travelling fair comes to his village. Everything that is synonymous with Tati’s signature style can be found in this film, from the careful crafting of silent visual gags to the theme of exposing mankind’s absurd reliance on technology. The character of the postman is a sketch for Tati’s most beloved creation – Monsieur Hulot.
