1967. France/Italy. Dir: Jacques Tati. With Tati. 155 min.
If visual complexity and laugh-out-loud comedy seem like odd yet intriguing bedfellows, consider this symphony of simultaneous gags, a veritable live-action WHERE’S WALDO book. Amidst sets so convoluted and expensive that the film bankrupted the obsessive Tati, his beloved character Monsieur Hulot navigates Paris in all its frightening modernity.
DATE: Tonight, December 4
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema
