We often say that a film must be seen on the big screen to be properly appreciated. This was never so true as in the case of Jacques Tati’s nearly wordless masterpiece PLAYTIME. His signature character Monsieur Hulot again appears, in a comedic portrait of the Twentieth Century and its bemused inhabitants, who sometimes seem dwarfed by the world that they have created. Tati accomplishes this by filming in extreme long shots on an absolutely gigantic multimillion dollar set. It’s truly like no other film, as simultaneous, humorous action unfolds in minute scale. Genuinely funny and technically astonishing. This one is fun and fascinating for the whole family.
