Monsieur Hulot

Monsieur Hulot is a character created and played by French comic Jacques Tati for a series of films in the 1950s and '60s, namely Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot (our film above), Mon Oncle (1959), Play Time (1967) and Trafic (1971).

He is recognized by his overcoat, pipe and hat, and his distinctive lurching walk. His escapades usually involved clashes with technology and the problems of living in an increasingly impersonal and gadgetized world. In Trafic, Hulot, the designer of a new camper-car, “struggles valiantly… against the perpetual roadblocks of cars, policemen, bureaucrats and just people.”
