Selected by the Costume Designers Branch.

Groundbreaking actor-filmmaker Jacques Tati’s inimitable comic character, the lovably awkward Mr. Hulot, made his second feature film appearance in this madcap classic, which won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. In Tati’s first film released in color, Hulot finds himself at odds with the high-tech suburban home of his beloved young nephew. The witty costumes, which supply their own distinctive visual humor, were designed by an uncredited Pierre Etaix.
