Comedy

UK | 2019

Directed by John-Paul Davidson, Stephen Warbeck
Starring Ciarán Hinds, Stephen Dillane, Sasha Hails 

"Superb… funny, charming & wonderful" – Stephen Fry

An astonishing feat of contemporary film-making that has just benefited from a successful UK theatrical release, The Man in the Hat is a beautifully framed odyssey of music, story-telling and silent comedy traversing the breath-taking landscapes of France.

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?

Travelling North on his escape across the mountains, gorges and bridges of France, he hears stories of love and loss, Otis Redding and Canteloube, and encounters mysterious strangers including The Damp Man, The Chef and The Biker; coming 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.
