The Top 100 Inspirational Movies: 100 - 81
page 99 - Mon Oncle
Jacques Tati made four films starring the bumbling and
lovable Monsieur Hulot, of which Mon
Oncle is only the second. He is a French successor to Charlie Chaplin and
Buster Keaton, and a predecessor to such characters as Mr. Bean. He is affable
and unassuming, and the films he breezes through are not out-and-out comedies
like we’ve come to expect in America, but relaxed reflections on life that
cause you to laugh out loud on occasion. Watching Hulot, you want to approach
life like he does – without care and worry, and certainly without deep concern
over what others might think of you. He is a truly happy individual and we’d do
well to emulate his outlook on life.
