Jacques Tati's gloriously choreographed, nearly wordless comedies about confusion in an age of high technology reached their apotheosis with PLAYTIME. For this monumental achievement, Tati thrusts the loveably old-fashioned Monsieur Hulot, along with a host of other lost souls, into a baffling modern world, this time Paris. With every inch of its frame crammed with hilarity and inventiveness, PLAYTIME is a lasting record or modern era tiptoeing on the edge of oblivion.

An absurd, life-affirming comedy celebrating its 50th Anniversary, PLAYTIME is a celebration and satirization of modernity from this acclaimed director.
