Saint Nazaire, we found Mr. Hulot's pipe - Saint Nazaire / Saint-Marc-sur-mer-Loire-Atlantique <br /> -

Saint Nazaire, we found Mr. Hulot's pipe

 Saint-Nazaire, Saint-Marc sur mer, the beach hotel...

Seven kilometres from the centre of Saint-Nazaire, there is Saint-Marc-sur-mer, and its very pretty beach... after long research aimed at finding "a small town frequented mainly by modest summer visitors, large families and regulars" Jacques Tati had finally chosen this beach as the location for the shooting of the famous "Monsieur Hulot holidays", his character setting up his suitcase, his fishing rod, and his shrimp net at the Hôtel de la plage.

 

The statue, and its pipe....

In memory of this "cult" event, a statue of Mr. Hulot was installed, supported by a railing and looking at the sea, with the Hôtel de la plage not far away, as in the film.

 

And, of course, Mr. Hulot has his inseparable pipe...

Yes, but it is a tempting object, and easy to break to take it with you and place it on some living room shelf!

So... it was broken, then replaced, and it disappeared again, and it was replaced... rumour has it that seven pipes were successively stolen, then replaced, until the municipality gave up. And things have remained that way for about ten years.

Until Fernand Pornet, at 75 years old, decided to give Mr. Hulot a blowjob again in January 2019! It must be said that he was particularly attached to this attribute, since he himself owns a real pipe offered by Jacques Tati to his father during the shooting of the film!

 

Claude Evin, the law of the same name, RATP... and Mr. Hulot's pipe

In a very unusual way, Claude Evin, the author of the Evin law, former deputy of Loire-Atlantique, opposed the application of his own law by RATP.

Indeed, a poster advertising campaign was to take place in the corridors of the metro, and represented Mr. Hulot with his famous pipe, which, by law, was censored and replaced by a small graphic element.

"This is the use of an image that is not intended to develop tobacco advertising. It is a visual that has become part of the public heritage and is part of film culture," said the former MP, judging that his law did not have to be applied in this case.

Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot de Jacques Tati

Click on the image

Cinéaste de la transparence et de l'observation du quotidien, Jacques Tati est d'abord cinéaste de la révélation et de la démocratie du regard. Inventeur du burlesque sonore, d'une véritable poétique du son, il réconcilie comique et réalisme, pour mieux les confondre dans sa propre mise en scène du monde, totalité organique exemplaire dans toute l'Histoire du cinéma.
Pour Jacques Kermabon, Monsieur Hulot est d'abord l'incarnation du mouvement perpétuel.
Jacques Tati : Deux temps, trois mouvements.

Monsieur Hulot à la plage

Click on the image

Après Le Jacquot de Monsieur Hulot (2006) et Hello Monsieur Hulot (2010), David Merveille rend un nouvel hommage au personnage de Jacques Tati. Il imagine la rencontre entre Monsieur Hulot et un petit garçon sur la plage de Saint-Marc-sur-Mer, là où Jacques Tati avait tourné Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot. Ici, tout va se jouer dans la complicité facétieuse avec cet enfant. Une série de gags dans la veine du comique-poétique de Tati.
