|Jacques Tati||Monsieur Hulot|
|Jean-Pierre Zola||Monsieur Arpel|
|Adrienne Servantie||Madame Arpel|
Genial, bumbling Monsieur Hulot loves his top-floor apartment in a grimy corner of the city, and cannot fathom why his sister's family has moved to the suburbs. Their house is an ultra-modern nightmare, which Hulot only visits for the sake of stealing away his rambunctious young nephew . Hulot's sister, however, wants to win him over to her new way of life, and conspires to set him up with a wife and job.
