Quidam film night: Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot
September 23 @ 7:15 pm
To mark ‘la rentrée’ – the summer holidays over and back to school – the opening event in the new Quidam season will be the classic Jacques Tati comedy film ‘Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot’. This re-digitalised version is undoubtedly Tati’s best loved film, and favourite scenes such as how to win at a tennis match makes it a charming and enduring hymn to the traditional French seaside holiday.
Only 88 minutes long, the film will be shown in the church parish rooms. There will be a short introduction beforehand on the films of Jacques Tati and his place in 20th century French cinema. We will be offering a selection of refreshments to our filmgoers, although you may want to bring a small cushion with you as the church chairs aren’t quite cinema standard.
Further Sunday night films in this series will include ‘Cinema Paradiso’, ‘Au revoir les enfants’, ‘The Lives of Others’ and ‘Ida’.
Sunday 23rd September, at 7.15 for 7.30pm, in the parish rooms. To reserve a seat, please email: email@example.com .
