Fifth about The Seventh

Mon Oncle

Mon OncleMon Oncle: Jacques Tati’s masterpiece is a gentle comedy but a biting satire; his film is a work of great precision and meticulousness, both visually (the sets, by themselves, display a great amount of character and are very well-used within the story) and aurally (the sound design is rich, always part of the joke, almost a character by itself), one that benefits greatly from repeated viewing. Also, one that is very cinematic, with the dialogue more often than not being the least relevant of all the elements in play at any given moment. All of that, however, is serving a story that has a lot to say and a great heart, as well.
