Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot
The origin of Monsieur Hulot, vacationing in a small beach hotel, failing to attract the attention of Martine. She is pushed towards that intellectual twit, but rebuffs him too. That love triangle is a pure sideshow, the star as the many very funny visual gags.
As for whoever saidwas a remake of this, not sure what were smoking. Not Hulot’s pipe, that’s for sure.
