mononcle

Mon Oncle is a French comedic film from 1958 by director Jacques Tati.  The film deals with France’s post war obesession with modern architecture.  The main character, Monsuier Hulot is a charming gentleman who gets himself into some interesting situations and is terribly awkward in the modern space.  The sets, landscaping, and furniture is unbelieveable!  There is a great running gag throughout the film involving a fish fountain that is only turned on when important guests arrive.  Larry Weinberg has a great article on the interior design of this film on Interior Design.net.
