The BFI's acclaimed Jacques Tati remaster series continues with the world premiere High Definition release of Tati's multi-award-winning third feature, Mon Oncle, in two different versions. This 1958 box-office hit confirmed his reputation as the foremost comic artist of his day and picked up a string of awards, including the 1959 Oscar for Best Foreign Film.

Tati's second outing as the accident-prone Monsieur Hulot takes him to Paris where the high-tech lifestyle of his relatives, the Arpels, is contrasted with his old-fashioned ways in a scruffy part of town.

With an eye on the international market, and wishing to avoid subtitles (which he always disliked), Tati shot two versions of the film - Mon Oncle and My Uncle, the latter replacing French signs such as 'Ecole' and 'Sortie' with their English equivalents and dubbing much of the main dialogue into English. This specially remastered edition contains both versions.
  • Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition (on both Blu-ray and DVD)
  • Original French language version.
  • Also includes the alternative English language version, prepared for the overseas market by Tati himself.
  • Original trailer
  • Illustrated booklet with films notes and credits with its rarely heard English-language soundtrack
