  • Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Mr. Hulots Holiday vintage movie posters. Film/Art Gallery offers a wide range of movie posters and artwork for one of cinema's ultimate comedy films.

    The 1953 French comedy film Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot, released as Monsieur Hulot's Holiday or Mr. Hulot's Holiday in the US, is directed by Jacques Tati who also stars alongside Nathalie Pascaud and Micheline Rolla. Mr. Hulot's Holiday follows the misadventures of a lovable Frenchman, Monsieur Hulot, as he sets out on a holiday at a modest seaside resort. His presence provokes one catastrophe after another wherever he goes. The classic French comedy exhibits Tati’s masterful execution of well-choreographed gags involving firecrackers, dogs, and boats.

    Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot aka Mr. Hulot's Holiday was the first entry in the Hulot series and launched Tati to international stardom. His film emphasizes French political and economic classes, from chubby capitalists to Marxist intellectuals who wanted to free themselves from their social roles to relax and enjoy life.

    Jacques Tati's French comedy film combines frequent long shots of scenes with multiple characters and limited spoken dialogue with an emphasis on background sounds. Tati believed that results tightly focus the audience's attention on the comical nature of humanity. As a 'silent' comedy film, it uses natural and man-made sounds for comic effect and character development made in both French and English language versions.

    A review by Journalist Bosley Crowther Jr., states that the film contained the same visual satire from the pictures of Charlie Chaplin. He added, the film "exploded with merriment" and that Tati’s talent for caricaturing the manners of human beings is intense. Biographer David Bellos described the film as "Sublime," and said that he fell in love with France. The film Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot aka Mr. Hulot's Holiday was entered into the 1953 Cannes Film Festival.
