A French comedy master whose films went unseen for decades as a result of legal tangles director-actor Pierre Etaix is a treasure the cinematic world has rediscovered and taken up with relish. His work can be placed in the spectrum of classic physical comedy with that of Jacques Tati and Jerry Lewis but it also stands alone. These films influenced by Etaix's experiences as a circus acrobat and clown and by the silent film comedies he adored are elegantly deadpan but as an on-screen presence Etaix radiates warmth. This collection includes all of his films including five features The Suitor (1962) Yoyo (1965) As Long as You've Got Your Health (1966) Le grand amour (1969) and Land of Milk and Honey (1971) most of them collaborations with the great screenwriter Jean-Claude Carri+¿re (The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie) and three shorts Rupture (1961) the Oscar-winning Happy Anniversary (1962) and Feeling Good (1966). Not one of these is anything less than a bracing and witty delight.
