Mon oncle • 1h 50m
Director Jacques Tati created this version of MON ONCLE for English-speaking audiences, to be released concurrently with the original French version. In it, the Arpel family members converse in English, while the townspeople around them speak French. In some cases, scenes were actually reshot so that English street signs could be incorporated.
