Fun, Quirky New Posters for Jacques Tati’s ‘Mon Oncle’


Another month, another great series of new film posters by the cinephile designers at the Silver Screen Society. In October, the group is paying tribute to Mon Oncle. The 1958 comedy finds filmmaker and comic genius Jacques Tati reprising his signature future-shocked, pipe-smoking character, Monsieur Hulot, who made his first appearance in 1953’s Monsieur Hulot’s Holiday. It’s no surprise that graphic artists would take such a liking to Mon Oncle — one of the movie’s principal sources of humor is the impracticality of modern architecture and design. See how the SSS depicts Hulot and his surroundings after the jump.
