JOUR DE FÊTE 1949 (PG) – B&W 86 mins (comedy) Jaques Tati
In a small French town, the local postman, scatterbrained and bumbling François spends his working hours casually delivering the mail, while being the subject of the townsfolk’s teasing. When a traveling carnival arrives in town, a drunken François watches a film about the efficiency of the U.S. Postal Service. Inspired, the hapless François sets out on his bicycle to become just like the U.S. postmen.
