M. Hulot's Holiday, also known as Les Vacances de M. Hulot, is a classic 1953 French slapstick comedy starring the beloved comedian Jacques Tati, who also wrote and directed the film. Monsieur Hulot (Jacques Tati) travels to the seaside for the traditional French vacation in August. The clumsy and oblivious Hulot manages to unintentionally create chaos wherever he goes in his efforts to connect with other vacationers. The solitary Hulot tries to charm a pretty blonde, Martine (Nathalie Pascaud), play an unconventional game of tennis or take a kayak out in the ocean, but in every instance manages to disrupt and upset a collection of stereotypical French characters from politically correct Marxists to greedy businessmen, snooty waiters and spoiled debutantes. The popularity and critical acclaim for the M. Hulot character would lead to the later Tati films Mon Oncle (1959), Playtime (1967), and Trafic (1971) and would inspire the Rowan Atkinson character, Mr. Bean.
