A protest against modernity,

This review is from: Playtime  [DVD] (DVD)
In this film Tati pokes fun at our obsession for all things modern and gadgetry. Once again Tati's comic genius shines through in his sharp observations of our modern world with the assistance of a coachload of American tourists visiting Paris. The scene in the neawly opened restaurant that is not quite finished is really a gem especially the commissionaire opening a non-existent glass door to customers after it has been smashed. Sharp observation of people throughout the film which is a little overlong but stick with it, it is definitely worth it.
