WATCH “JOUR DE FÊTE” FOR FREE AT THE ALLIANCE FRANÇAISE DE MANILLE

Monday, June 30, 2014

As part of its cine-club activities, Alliance Française de Manille is delighted to announce the showing of Jacques Tati's 1952 French comedy classic Jour de Fête (The Big Day) on Wednesday, July 2, 2014, 8:30p.m., starring Jacques Tati, Roger Rafal, Jacques Beauvais, Guy Decomble, Paul Frankeur and Santa Relli.



All is calm in this little village in the center of France until the fairground entertainers arrive with their trailers. Then the fair gets under way: carousel, lottery, brass band and a traveling cinema where François, the local postman, discovers a film about the American postal service. Encouraged by the whole village, he sets out to deliver the mail American Style.



Reviews

La superbe restauration de Jour de fête offre la possibilité de revoir en salles le premier long métrage de Jacques Tati dans toute la splendeur d’un noir et blanc qui fait oublier que le film avait été initialement pensé et tourné en couleurs!

-- Libération

Tati's feature debut is a brilliant, smart, timeless comedy, which immediately established his reputation as major director and auteur.

-- New-York Press

Restored original version with English subtitles. Screenings are free of charge and open to everyone.
