Mr. Hulot's Holiday

More sketches from a film.
This time, the French classic "Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot" (1953) (Mr. Hulot's Holiday)
by Jacques Tati, that brilliant filmmaker, genius and comedian.
Tati's style is mainly visual (He was originally a mime!) I've got the original French version with no subtitles, and it's incredible how I can understand (and enjoy) every minute in the movie, even I don't know any word in French language!
Great gags and a lot of visual info about composition.
And yes, it's made in "glorious" black and white (though the original master was filmed in color, it's distributed in b/w, in a tribute to silent films)
.

Hola señor Goma!
Gracias por visitarme y gracias por esos comentarios tan animosos.
Espero ver tu "remote" pronto.
Estos apuntes de M Hulot son fantásticos, me gustan mucho los dibujos así, a lápiz sin más.

Abocetar las películas o cualquier cosa de la “caja tonta” me parece una práctica excelente. Yo mismo llené muchas páginas con esbozos de este tipo.
Tus dibujos me parecen excelentes. Mantener este tipo de diario de lo que ves en la tele es, además, un recordatorio muy especial de lo que viste.

Muy bonitos. El tono sepia le da un buen punto

Really nice, did you draw without pausing the movie ?
I like your sketches series with a lot of character on one page, really dynamic.

Sometimes pausing, sometimes not. I try not to use it very much, but in a complete movement scene it's almost impossible not going frame-to-frame.
