Five films by legendary French comedian, writer and director Jacques Tati.

In his directorial debut, 'Jour de Fete' (1948), the postman of a sleepy French town (Tati) is inspired to add a little zip into his own delivery route after observing the high-speed efficiency of the American postal service. This coincides with the arrival of the summer fair, and - needless to say - chaos ensues.

In 'Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot' (aka 'Mr Hulot's Holiday') (1953), accident-prone bachelor Monsieur Hulot (Tati) arrives at a seaside resort and unwittingly creates chaos. Nathalie Pascaud and Michelle Rolla co-star.

Tati reprises his role as Hulot in 'Mon Oncle' (1958). Monsieur Hulot lives in a small backstreet dwelling, which contrasts sharply with his brother's excessively modern, suburban lifestyle. Havoc ensues when Hulot goes to work for his brother.

In the third Hulot film, 'Playtime' (1968), Monsieur Hulot and a group of American women tourists travel through Paris, he struggling to keep an appointment, they searching for the romantic Paris of old. Tati's satirical view of modern city life was played out entirely on a vast mobile set, known as 'Tativille', just outside Paris.

'Parade' (1974) is a semi-documentary in which Tati gives a jovial observation of the circus, including the shenanigans that go on behind the scenes of the production.

These are really good comedy films.
However as a collection, one of his best films 'TRAFIC' is missing - why is this?
