Mon Oncle is a 1958 comedy by Jacques Tati. The film focuses on the socially awkward, yet lovable character of Monsieur Hulot and his struggle with postwar France's infatuation with modern architecture, mechanical efficiency and consumerism. It is largely a visual comedy with very little dialogue. The film was a huge success for Tati, winning the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, a special prize at the 1958 Cannes Film Festival and the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
I adore this film, and as someone who is just as obsessed about mid century homes as I am about clothes this film is a real treat for the eyes! You should definitely check out Tati's other films in the Monsieur Hulot series, Monsieur Hulot's Holiday, Playtime and Traffic - all hugely entertaining and full of inspiration. A lot of my style inspiration comes from watching old films and tv shows.
