Jacques Tati wrote, directed, and starred in this riotous comedy, the second entry in his Hulot trilogy. When Mr. Hulot visits his sophisticated relatives in Paris, he runs up against automation gone amok in their high-tech home. Only Hulot's relationship with his young nephew can help restore calm and reason. Visual gags abound, gently harking back to the days of silent film comedy.
