The Man in the Hat (Ciarán Hinds) journeys through France in a Fiat 500 accompanied by a framed photograph of an unknown woman. He is pursued by five angry men in a Citroën Dyane. Why are they chasing him? And how can he shake them off?
An astonishing feat of contemporary film-making, The Man in the Hat is a beautifully fashioned odyssey of music, story-telling and silent comedy traversing the breath-taking landscapes of France.
Travelling North on his escape across the mountains, gorges and bridges of France, he comes face to face with the vivid eccentricities of an old country on an old continent, whilst trying to evade the pursuers who are always, relentlessly, on his tail.
WHAT THE PRESS SAY
“It’s quirky and touching, and if you want to travel but don’t want to travel, then off-the-beaten-track France will do your heart good.”
Harry Guerin, RTE Ireland
