      Thanks for that. You have not only discovered a bug but you have also alerted me to a great new movie that I will definitely want to see.

      Do you know when it's due for release?

      Cheers, KT :)

      Now out on DVD. It's beautifully animated with some very "clever" scenes, one in particular I loved was the Illusionist going into a cinema and seeing Mon Oncle on the screen, the cinema is named The Cameo! And thats the problem really, it IS good, but not very repeatable. I wonder if Mr Tati didn't make this as a live action movie in the 50s because it wasn't quite good enough? Worth a rental, but unless your a real fan, probably not worth adding to your collection. 6 out of 10.

      I saw Mr. Hulot's Holiday as a kid in the mid-50s. While I didn't get large chunks of the movie at the time, some of the sigtht gags were REALLY funny. Tati did seem to have a unique spin on things and was able to express it...

      I finally got to see The Illusionist (L'illusionniste) on DVD today. I found it interesting and there are definate Tati touches which I liked but couldn't help thinking how much more Tati himself would have done with the material.


      That's probably unfair to the director and animators - guess the film must stand on it's own merits, not what could have been so many years ago.
