Directed by Jacques Tati
Produced in 1949-74
Main Language - French with English subtitles
Five films from Jacques Tati. Features Jour de fête (1949), Les Vacances de M. Hulot (1953), Mon Oncle (1958), Playtime (1967) and Parade (1974).
Jacques Tati was one of the 20th century’s greatest filmmakers. His ability to captivate audiences with a humour that is almost entirely visual is simply a joy to behold.
Jour de fête: a hilarious exposé of the modern obsession of with speed and efficiency, Jacques Tati’s award winning feature début is a dazzling blend of satire and slapstick.
Les Vacances de M. Hulot: The film that brought Tati international acclaim also launched his on-screen alter ego: the courteous, well-meaning and eternally accident-prone Monsieur Hulot.
Mon Oncle: Tati’s third feature is a satirical assault on the twin targets of efficiency and the modern world. Winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and a Special Prize at Cannes.
Playtime: 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.
Parade: Tati’s last film sees his return to the boisterous music hall world in which he began his career as a mime artist in the 1930s.
