Monsieur Hulot, something of an eccentric, spends his vacation at a small seaside hotel. Thanks to his clumsiness and odd shyness, he befriends the child guests and an elderly Englishwoman, finally attracting the attention of young Martine. All the other guests tend to reject his friendly eccentricity. Comic mix-ups and catastrophes follow unavoidably.

Jacques Tati first introduced the character of Monsieur Hulot in his second full-length film. This man goes beyond the normal comedic clichés with his headstrong nature and imagination, which touched the audience and took the film public by storm.
