The BFI's celebrated Jacques Tati remaster series continues with the world premiere High Definition release of the great director's much-loved debut, Jour de fête, in not one, but two different versions. This award-winning comic masterpiece introduced audiences to Tati's dazzling blend of satire and slapstick, and has won the hearts of audiences the world over.

Tati plays an appealingly inept postman who is intent on modernising the postal system in the depths of rural France. Tati's antics throughout are endlessly inventive, and the film also serves as an affectionate, gently mocking tribute to a vanishing way of life.

This specially remastered edition features the original 1949 'Thomson color' version, shown to audiences for the first time in 1995, as well as Tati's 1964 re-edit of the original 1949 black and white version, complete with specially created hand coloured detail and the addition of an entirely new character - the English-speaking painter.
  • Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition (on both Blu-ray and DVD)
  • Original 1949 colour version, first seen by audiences in 1995. French language.
  • Also includes Tati's alternative 1964 re-edit, which re-works the original 1949 black and white version, adding a new character (the English-speaking painter) and elements of hand painted colour. English language.
  • Three Tati shorts: Soigne ton gauche (1936, 12 mins, b&w)
  • L'Ecole des facteurs (1947, 15 mins, b&w)
  • Cours du soir (1967, 28 mins, colour) (DVD only)
  • Illustrated booklet with films notes and credits
