More Info IMDb

Writer/director Tati expertly transforms the screen into a manic comedic typhoon of outrageous inventions and blaring colors in his single greatest, grandest and most earthshakingly hilarious foray into fearless filmmaking. In PLAYTIME, Monsieur Hulot (played by the director) stumbles through the terrifyingly modernized streets of Paris, where ludicrous architecture and zany Rube Goldberg-esque mantraps cause increasingly complex goofball crises.

It's very truly one of the most stunning accomplishments in the history of movies; an impossible spectacle that'll unravel your brain while you laugh yourself inside out. PLAYTIME was shot in 70mm, and we'll be experiencing it in a big, big, bright, recently restored 70mm print, where Tati's visionary madcappery will explode into your senses and never leave your skull. Unforgettable, unbelievable, and unmissable!
