Jour de fête / The Big Day by Jacques Tati (70′)

Jour de fete landscape

Tati’s first major feature, Jour de fête, tells the story of an inept rural village postman who interrupts his duties to inspect the traveling fair that has come to town. Influenced by too much wine and a documentary on the rapidity of the American postal service, he goes to hilarious lengths to speed his mail deliveries aboard his bicycle.
