Tit for Tati


If you haven’t already, you’ve got to see Jacques Tati’s fourth and most complex, choreographically brilliant film, Playtime. You can actually see it here. But if you want a much better print go here.


Playtime is Tati’s most ambitious film. Shot in 1964 through 1967 and released in 1967, Playtime, features Tati as Monsieur Hulot, the hapless bumbler and jester from Mon Oncle, Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot and the exquisite Trafic.


As stated in the liner notes for the excellent Criterion release:

“Hulot appears intermittently in Playtime, alternating between central and supporting roles. Shot in 70 mm, Playtime is notable for its enormous set, which Tati had built specially for the film [called Tativille, which almost bankrupt him], as well as his trademark use of subtle, yet complex visual comedy supported by creative sound effects; dialogue is frequently reduced to the level of background noise.”

The costumes are also vintage Mad Men.
