Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Jour de Fete vintage movie posters. Film/Art Gallery offers a wide range of movie posters and artwork for the cinema's ultimate comedy films.

Jour de fête (The Big Day) is a 1949 French comedy film that features Jacques Tati in his movie directional debut as a careless and simply distracted mailman in a backward French village. Shot in Sainte-Sévère-sur-Indre, where Tati had lived during the Occupation, most of the actors were unknown and villagers served as extras.

The story tells of a young boy who watches a traveling fair arrive in his village of Sainte-Sévère-sur-Indre, on a public holiday. Among the people in the area is François, the amiable and bumbling mailman, who everybody likes but nobody takes seriously. Marcel and Roger, the men running the fair, make him their butt. Within the cinema tent, people watch a spoof documentary that contrasts the unbelievable efficiency of the US post office with the antiquated French post office. They decide that François must stand up to this point and, although he only encompasses a bicycle, must start using a transatlantic dash in his delivery. In the end, exhausted by his frantic efforts, he stops to assist a family pitchfork their new-mown hay into a horse-drawn cart, while the boy from the opening scene completes the deliveries on François's route.
