Nautilus Art Prints has just announced a stunning new print by Laurent Durieux and the good news is, EVERYONE can get one.  That’s right, Laurent’s upcoming print, “François à l’Américaine” is a timed edition which means if you want it, (and you know you do), you can EASILY get one.

Laurent’s “François à l’Américaine” is a collaboration between Les Films de mon Oncle and Nautilus Art Prints for the 1949 comedy “Jour de Fête,” directed by French filmmaker Jacques Tati.  Throughout his long career, he worked as a comic actor, writer, and director. In a poll conducted by Enter- tainment Weekly of the Greatest Movie Directors, Tati was voted the 46th greatest of all time. With only six feature-length films to his credit as director, he directed fewer films than any other director on this list of 50.

The film’s main character, François the postman, is a mix between Buster Keaton and Inspector Clouseau, who was brilliantly played by Peter Sellers.  Laurent’s depiction offers fans a retro vibe that is very suiting towards the film.  We absolutely love the color palette, the lighting, the vehicles,  Francois and his motorcycle…actually… we love EVERYTHING about this one!
