With films like: Mon Oncle (1958) and Playtime (1967), Jacques Tati (1907-1982) made a significant contribution to that small but celebrated group of films in which architecture plays a prominent role; other leading works are Metropolis (1927) by Fritz Lang, The Fountainhead (1949), and the sci-fi film Blade Runner (1982)
Playtime, 1967: Janus Films, 126 min. Dir.Jacques Tati. Monsieur Hulot must contact an American official in Paris, but he gets caught in a tourist invasion and roams around the city with a group of American tourists, causing chaos in his usual manner. In true Tati fashion, we are shown Paris as a stylish maze of mid-century modern architecture filled with the latest technological gadgets.
70mm: in French with English subtitles.
