Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot, all new !

In 2009, Les Films de Mon Oncle undertook to re-master Jacques Tati’s second full length feature film, Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot, in partnership with the Thomson Foundation for Film & Television Heritage, the Groupama Gan Film Foundation and the Cinémathèque française. A re-mastering that combines photochemical and digital methods is carried out from the original negative (picture and sound). The director returned to his film several times, adding (and removing) gags. There have been three versions put together by Tati, accompanied by three re-releases: the first in 1953, a second in 1962, for which the poster was illustrated by the drawings of Pierre Etaix, then the third in 1978 with the addition of shots of the canoe-shark arriving on the beach, inspired by the film Jaws. The re-mastered version is the 1978 one, in the form that Jacques Tati wanted it. Particular attention is given to sound restoration, Tati having several times returned to the sound mixing, there again looking for a very personal mode of expression and an extremely subtle original tone. The re-mastered film is being shown at the 2009 Cannes Festival and will be released in cinemas on 1 July 2009.
