Moscow Film Society: PlayTime

Wednesday, November 22 at 7:00 PM

“Jacques Tati’s 1967 masterpiece still holds up as a feast of subtle sight gags, playful noise and, above all, visual wonders.”
— Time Out
Moscow Film Society presents PLAYTIME as part of their Surreal Absurdities series. Jacques Tati’s gloriously choreographed, nearly wordless comedies about confusion in an age of high technology reached their apotheosis with PLAYTIME. For this monumental achievement, a nearly three-year-long, bank-breaking production, Tati again thrust the lovably old-fashioned Monsieur Hulot, along with a host of other lost souls, into a baffling modern world, this time Paris. With every inch of its superwide frame crammed with hilarity and inventiveness, PLAYTIME is a lasting record of a modern era tiptoeing on the edge of oblivion.
Rated: Not Rated | 2 hr 4 min | Tickets: $8 Adult or $5 Child or Film Pass
