When I last googled Mr Hulot I missed Tativille
In Playtime I put the dialogue in the sound.
(Playtime) is an invitation. "Look about you and you'll see there's always something funny happening. I think that Playtime is made not so much for the screen as for the eye" Jacques Tati.
"Mon Oncle" ... a great, great fillum.
Projectionist ... show us your Tatis.

Playtime was such a great experience on a big screen, all the details came to life. A tad long at times, maybe, but defintely worth the effort...

Mr Hulots holiday- bloody classic mate. Tati was a genius.

I love all these films, with Playtime probably topping the list. And even though I'm envious when reading here about "at last the DVD..." (without a DVD player of course) I'd still wait to see Playtime or any Tati on the big screen.
The eye seems to need it.
It's been a few good calendars since it was on at the Astor.
