Jour de Fête

Allowed 70 minutes 1949 7.4

In his 1948 feature film debut, French comedian Jacques Tati plays a not-too-clever small-town postman who causes total chaos as he tries to be as "American effective" as he has seen on film in during the National Day celebration. On his bumpy bike, he initiates a series of wild adventures and his efforts tie together a series of wonderful humorous events. Among other things, he rides right into the leading crowd in Tour de France. But above all, the good postman steps right into film history. According to Bonniers stora filmguide, Tati's skill and sense of timing made him one of the best movie comedians after Buster Keaton.
