An astonishing feat of contemporary film-making, The Man in the Hat is a beautifully framed odyssey of music, story-telling and silent comedy traversing the breath-taking landscapes of France.
Sunday just got a whole lot better! Join us for le pique-nique Man-in-The-Hat style on Sunday 16 May, from 3.30 pm for du pain, du fromage et du vin. Enjoy a section of French cheeses, baguettes and olives (while stocks last) while savouring a selection of our wines purchased from the bar.
The Man In The Hat sets off from Marseilles in a small Fiat 500. On the seat beside him is a framed photograph of an unknown woman. Behind him is a 2CV into which is squeezed Five Bald Men. Why are they chasing him? And how can he shake them off?
As he travels north through France, he encounters razeteurs, women with stories to tell, bullfights, plenty of delicious food, a damp man, mechanics, nuns, a convention of Chrystallographers and much more. And always, on his tail, the Five Bald Men.
As the Fiat 500 wends its way across the mountains, gorges and bridges of France, the 2CV hard behind him, the Thin Man (Ciaran Hinds) comes face-to-face with the vivid eccentricities of an old country on an old continent.
"Beautifully made, sumptuously shot and a definite change of pace from the hectic bustle of blockbuster cinema." HeyUGuys.
