Jacques Tati's award-winning feature debut - a dazzling blend of satire and slapstick - is early evidence of his unique talent. Acclaimed by international critics as an innovative comic masterpiece, Jour de fete is an hilarious expose of the modern obsession with speed and efficiency, set amidst the rural surroundings of a tiny French village.

Tati plays an appealingly self-deluded buffoon - a postman who, impressed by the bristling efficiency of the American postal system, makes a wholly misguided attempt to introduce modern methods in the depths of rural France. Initially released in black and white, but also shot in Thomsoncolor, an untested colour process, the film has been restored and is finally available in its original delicate colour.
