In 2003, Piet Schreuders visited Saint-Marc-sur-Mer (near Saint-Nazaire, west of Nantes in France’s département Loire-Atlantique), where Jacques Tati had shot Les vacances de Monsieur Hulotsome fifty years earlier (in 1951, actually). Obviously, he did some rephotography whilst there – you can find his pictures among his fantastic sets of images on F’r, via his site http://www.pietschreuders.com/ > projects > film locations … or in the feature “De sporen van Monsieur Hulot” in the VPRO Gids of 2003-09. (As a matter of fact, Schreuders designs that Dutch broadcasting corporation’s magazine, alongside loads of other projects involving the Beatles, the Beau Hunks, cats & kittens, and rephotography). As for Alain Romans’ soundtrack … see below.
