    What an excellent collection! I've always admired the films of Jacques Tati so to have them all together and in such beautifully restored condition is certainly a joy for me. I hadn't realised that Tati had a habit of re-editing some of his films at certain intervals thus you get multiple versions of "Jour de Fete" and "Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot" (both of which get some newly filmed footage skilfully added to later versions). Another bonus is the lengthy fascinating documentaries that have been added to these discs.

    Admittedly those brought up on a diet of fast-moving action movies or raucous comedies from Hollywood sometimes struggle with Tati's films but if you are willing to absorb yourself in some gentle, nostalgic, heart-warming films there are many wonderful treasures to be found and savoured here.

    If you were going to buy one set of Tati's films the Studiocanal (SC) set is the way to go (more so if you can track down the Australian edition (same packaging) as it also includes the 2009 'Magnificent Tati' documentary). And if you're new to Tati that's what you'll do (if you're really new you'll buy one first - probably Mr Hulot's Holiday - and then go back and get the rest anyway). But let's face it, most of us reading these reviews are probably quite familiar with these films, at least some versions of them.

    Which brings me to the point of this review. While the Studiocanal set's picture and audio quality is usually equal or better than the BFI prints (plus one curiosity that's both better and worse at the same time), they don't replace the BFI versions. Let me explain:

    Jour de Fete - the BFI edition included the Thomsoncolor 1949 version (restored 1994) in HD. The SC edition has this in upscaled HD - the source is a SD master. This is the curiosity. Because Thomsoncolor was such a lousy system (all those vertical lines and washed out color), the upscaled version looks better than the true HD one on BFI. The inherent faults of the color process are less distracting. Weird, but true.
    Then we come to the 1964 version. And this gets really strange. In the original version/s of 1949 (the color and BW versions aren't the same. Read on), an old woman essentially provides our point of view and verbal commentary on the action. In the `International' 1964 color-stencil cut (the BFI edition version) she has been largely replaced by a wandering young artist and a pretty awful voice over. The BFI copy of this was (for Bluray) fairly poor.

    Superb restoration, looks better than previous Blu-ray iterations in terms of clarity (Playtime) and colour stability (Mon Oncle). Also includes his shorts, a favourite being Tati teaching a class how to trip up some steps, and also how to narrowly avoid bumping into something.

    Have been searching for JacquesTati films for years. No success in shops and limited success on line for normal DVDs - Blue Ray the only option, but delighted with result. Brilliant films.

    Update:
    I have now received the box set - and it is, indeed, a Region B Blu-Ray set just as I had thought. So everyone, there it is - it is NOT Region A. Hope this helps.
    Here is some additional information on the Studiocanal Essential Tati set - the extras included in the set for most of the films appear to be analytical films made by Stephane Goudet discussing each film. The extras on the BFI versions are different and those on the Criterion set are different still.

    Original Review:
    Giving 5 stars just for the films unseen in this collection (I have them all in prior versions in both Region A (Criterion) and Region B (BFI) versions. I have a question that I hope someone will answer for me. This Essential Collection is a British release I believe - so why is Amazon listing this as a Region A title? All the BFI blu-rays were Region B only. I am not complaining as I can play both versions here - but being in the US having this set in Region A pressings is great - but very puzzling. There are several differences that may or may not be explained between this set and the upcoming Criterion set. The Criterion set does not list having one version of Mon Uncle, M. Hulot's Holiday and Jour de fete that are listed on the Tati Collection here (via Michael Connor's review.) Namely, the Criterion Collection does not specifically mention in their web site description of the films the following:
    1. They do not state the original B&W theatrical version of Jour de fete is included.
    2. They do not state the revised version of M. Hulot's Holiday is included.
    3. They do not state the original French release version of Mon Uncle is included (just the version Tati created for English speaking audiences.
