I couldn't do any week of World Cinema without including at least one soundtrack from a Jacques Tati film. Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot (Mister Hulot's Holiday) has been referred by a lot of film critics and historians as one of the greatest film comedies of all time. Several friends of mine have never heard of it. So I suspect, being a film made in 1953, it may have missed a lot of people's "must see" lists of great films just because some great things can be overlooked.

And that's why we have Netflix.

Tonight's track, Quel temps fait-il a Paris is the main (and only) theme of the film and plays throughout. And by the end of the film you know it by heart. Which isn't such a bad thing as it's a pretty straight ahead Jazz number. So until you get a chance to see the film (if you already haven't), here's a taste of what you'll be hearing.
