Cine Fan Nov/Dec 2019: French films selection [fr] [中文]

The Hong Kong International Film Festival Society’s year-round Cine Fan program presents a world of cinematic fantasies in its November/December edition, among which, the visual comedies of Jacques TATI and Jean-Luc GODARD’s awe-inspiring visions on the history of cinema complete the French selection.


The Logic of Illusion: Jacques Tati

One of the greatest comedians in the history of cinema alongside Charlie CHAPLIN and Buster KEATON, Jacques TATI is renowned for his uniquely cinematic humor that raised slapstick to the level of high art. In his comic invention of the charmingly awkward surrogate Mr. Hulot – the central character in Mr. Hulot’s Holdiay (1953), My Uncle (1958), PlayTime (1967), and Traffic (1971), TATI expressed a satirical outrage at alienation in the modern industrialized world. The seven-film collection witnesses the uncompromising realization of the illusionist’s imagination – legacies inspired the works of David LYNCH, Wes ANDERSON and many others.
