Synopsis

A brilliantly funny film from France's master of comedy.
Playtime is Tati's most ambitious film made in 70mm instead of the conventional 35mm. It is a masterpiece from a man who loves people more than places and understands the vulnerability of mankind in a world where all offices and airports look alike and the aids to comfortable living can turn into pitfalls. Playtime shows Tati's great skill in finding small pleasures in the overwhelmingly standardised. "It is an achingly funny film" Sunday Telegraph. "Each tiny details building up into an experience which is almost painfully hilarious" Sunday Express. "This year's funniest film hit" News of the World. "This is one of the funniest and delightful films I have ever seen. A soaring triumph of quiet, carefully observed, always understanding comedy" Sun. "This is one of the most extraordinary films I have ever seen with the highest chuckle content and explosive laughter factor" Sunday Mirror.
