The Guardian calls it "a picturesque odyssey across the French countryside, the best Provençal driving holiday you’ve never had." Rotten Tomatoes has a critics consensus score of 100%. Roger Ebert's website says,
Whimsy is as delicate as a butterfly wing. But "The Man in the Hat" sustains a whimsical tone beautifully throughout its brief running time... Somewhere between a dream and a fable, this is the kind of film viewers could debate for hours, pondering the meaning of the characters who keep reappearing, the mysterious framed photo, the central character who has only two lines of dialogue...Here's a screenshot from the opening scene:
just go along for the ride and relish the lush French countryside, the luscious food, the lovely music...

Hi Nita. This is Erika, but I am commenting for Elizabeth because she can't get her computer to leave comments. She wants you to know that she appreciates you linking up to T day, and she feels bad she can't comment since she hosts the blog. She is supposed to get her computer looked at tomorrow, and hopefully she will then be back in the world of commenting. Thanks for linking up and sharing this comedy and the actor having a glass of wine for T this week.ReplyDelete
Hi Nita. Now this is Erika commenting. I don't know this film but I do like British comedies. I'm going to add this one to my list. Hope it was a great T day. hugs--ErikaReplyDelete

Oh! I want to see this! I ordered it at Amazon.ReplyDelete
This sounds good, will watch it soon. Thans, ValerieReplyDelete
Rick and I happened on this by mistake. I thought it was odd and strange as all get out but fascinating and fun. And it has Ciaran Hinds so I'd watch him do anything!ReplyDelete
This looks like a movie right down my alley. I recognize Ciarán Hinds from one of the Shetland seasons.ReplyDelete
Love him but not seen this one, thanks for sharing. Happy belated T Day Elle/EOTC xxReplyDelete
