About Playtime (France, 1967)

Tired of playing his bumbling alter ego, Monsieur Hulot, France’s silent clown, Jacques Tati decided to lose him in the big city. This gargantuan comedy was the result: Ostensibly following Hulot to a job interview, the film poetically drifts between characters, finding pockets of humor and humanity in every corner of the frame. You never quite know where the laughs will be, which makes successive viewings as rewarding as the first.
