M. Hulot's Holiday

The first time I saw Jacques Tati's humorous (and one of his most famous) film Monsieur Hulot's Holiday, I fell in love. It was last summer. I fell in love with the visual satire (clumsy Hulot played by Tati himself), the romantically washed out black and whites, the minimal script, and the way it makes me want to skip town for the South of France (if only). Read: makes me feel happy.

On that note, let's reinforce that although how some learned photographers can become too technical for their own good--

(Think "this is no good, imperfect print quality!"- a theory that M. Tichy has completely blown out of the water.)

-- the end goal is nothing if not to stir up a little emotion.
