"Mon Oncle" Modern Home Replica

The maddeningly modern home from Jacques Tati's classic 1958 film Mon Oncle has been re-created full-sized  - inside and out - at the 104 Centquatre in Paris coinciding with a comprehensive Tati Retrospective at the Cinematheque Francaise.

Faithful in every detail, the "Villa Arpel" even features the infamous spitting fish fountain. 
But catch a flight to Paris fast!  The whole house comes down May 31.

A clip from Mon Oncle...

...and constructing the replica!
