I don’t know about this one anymore. There are certainly great moments, but I must say Stewart’s character is nowhere as interesting as Novak’s, especially after he goes full crazy. Her situation is delicate, so many conflicted emotions, he is brute force, and a certain point it becomes overkill.

Perhaps because of the inclusion of the young boy, the stakes seem slightly higher here than in other Tati films and the typical longing/nostalgia veers into very real sadness. This poor boy is stuck with insane parents, parents who don’t really seem to care as much about him as they do themselves, and the one person who does care is shipped off.
