Jacques Tati's grumpy alter ego, Monsieur Hulot, struggles with the modern world in Mon Oncle

Mon Oncle; 1958

Jacques Tati's Oscar-winning comedy is a visually stunning and subtle satire of the world's incresasing obession with all things automated and mechanized. It centers around the eccentric but charming Monsieur Hulot (Tati) who visits his sister's technology-obsessed family in suburbia and has some trouble dealing with their snobby, "modern" ways and rampant consumerism. Fans of mid-century modern architecture and décor will appreciate the eye candy of the colorful set.
