Playtime

Rated Parental Guidance ~ Runs 124 minutes

Dir.: Jacques Tati, France

Jacques Tati, Barbara Dennek, Rita Maiden
In French with English subtitles


Presented by The Architects’ Association of PEI In Celebration of Architecture Week
Free admission


In this brilliant satire of our modern day metropolis the legendary French comedian Jacques Tati is featured as his screen persona, Monsieur Hulot. Tati pokes fun at the dehumanisation of society as he wanders through the glass and architecture maze of Paris, every so often crossing paths with a group of women on a tour of Europe. He confronts a bafflingly modern world with modern day technology. Playtime is now regarded as one of the greatest films of all time according to Sight and Sound’s 2012 poll of critics from around the world
