Jacques Tati Retrospective

SIFF's Jacques Tati retrospective concludes Jan. 15-18 with Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday (1953), the international hit that established his innovative stylistic armature of gags in long shot, sharply delineated sound design, and sidewalk-café observational pacing. Tati is a joy to watch, an artist in motion: pipe, raincoat, stalking gait with a liquid lag, murmuring and awkwardly gallant. (NR) NICOLAS RAPOLD
