Pierre Étaix – En pleine forme AKA Healthy Holidays (2010)


The most memorable gags in this short are the extended initial sequence where Étaix meticulously prepares himself a ‘spit’ of coffee and the sheer fact that, when he reaches the seemingly idyllic camping site eventually, he sees it is being run in a concentration camp fashion: in fact, at the very end, the protagonist has to tunnel his own way out of it! (by MARIO GAUCI)

This short movie was one of the sequences of the feature film Tant qu’on a la santé (1966). In 1971, Pierre Étaix re-edited his film and extracted this sequence, which became this short movie. In 2010, he decides to release it together with his other restored films.
