Hulot Friday - Trafic



This will be the last Hulot clip for a bit. There appears to be rather a lot of people working up to an injured back insurance claim. Watch at 2.35 as M. Hulot demonstrates the cause of the accident. Trafic was the last movie to see Jacques Tati as Monsieur Hulot and the only main one I have not seen.

  2. What is your fascination with Hulot? Was it something you watched when you were growing up? Very curious.

    1. Good question MC, and I don't have an answer. As usual with me, it will be a passing phase.

  4. That's definitely the best one yet, i especially like the spinning mini panel van and the talking v dub chasing the wheel.

  5. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
    The best you have shown so far. Love the precipitating incident, and then all the performing to type - especially the priest saying mass.

    Traffic will be a must see, now :)

    1. FC, it must have taken some making, without the aid of computer animation.

    1. Grace, I hope they don't drive like that in the country. The traffic in Paris did not seem so crazy to me, until I saw the round a bout on the Champs Elysée.
