Product description

Product Description

Regarded by many as Jacques Tati s masterpiece, Playtime is a surreal, comic vision of mankind s battle against the overwhelming depersonalisation of modern life.

Tati stars as the hapless Hulot, who ambles through the massive metropolis specially constructed for the film one of the most ambitious and imaginative film sets ever to grace the screen. The film is a multi-layered symphony of sight and sound gags. Jokes unfold in various parts of the frame simultaneously and the soundtrack a meticulously composed cacophony of footsteps, gibberish, and lounge music only adds to the absurdity.
