Join us every month for a subtitled screening of one of the most popular box-office hits in French cinema history, preceded by an informal presentation with a free glass of wine!

This month, (re)discover the 1953 comedy film  Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot by Jacques Tati. The film introduced to the world Monsieur Hulot, the iconic pipe-smoking clueless observer of the vanity of the modern western society who appears in Tati's subsequent films Mon Oncle, Playtime, and Trafic.
