Jacques Tati’s first feature (1949), with Tati as the mailman of a typically sleepy French provincial village (with the high Tati name of “Sainte-Severe-sur-Indre”) who sees a film on the modern U.S. postal service at the county fair and tries to put his own service on an up-to-date high-tech basis. His themes and personality already seem firmly set. In French with subtitles.
