Playtime (France, 1967)
Pure joy: after winning an Oscar® for his beloved Mon Oncle, actor-writer-director Jacques Tati spent years making this intricate slapstick masterpiece as a follow up. Using massive sets to orchestrate the dehumanizing idiocies of office spaces, trendy night clubs, traffic jams and airports, the grandeur of Tati’s ambition never overwhelms the delicacy (in both senses) of his comic staging. Exclusively shown in 70mm format, Playtime was a flop when released; a recent restoration has made now a perfect time to revisit what the New York Times called "Tati’s most brilliant film."
All of the films are free and are subtitled when necessary.
All of the films have adult content and are not suitable for children.
