1967. France. Dir: Jacques Tati. With Tati, Rita Maiden. 124 min.
If visual complexity and laugh-out-loud comedy seem like oddly intriguing bedfellows, consider this symphony of simultaneous gags – a veritable Where’s Waldo book brought to life. Amidst sets so intricate and expensive that they bankrupted the obsessive Tati, his beloved character Monsieur Hulot navigates Paris in all its frightening modernity.
