The Films of Pierre Étaix: The Laughter Returns
A gag writer for Jacques Tati; an Academy Award winner after just his second comic short; a close creative partner of the great French screenwriter and frequent Buñuel collaborator Jean-Claude Carrière; a gifted physical comedian and director responsible for a much-acclaimed (but long-unavailable) body of work in the 1960s; an actor and performer whose many screen credits include Fellini’s The Clowns and Aki Kaurismäki’s Le Havre —Pierre Étaix may very well be, as the Los Angeles Times recently called him, “the funniest filmmaker you’ve never heard of.”
