Jacques Tati’s gloriously choreographed and almost wordless comedies reached their peak with Playtime, which follows American tourist Barbara and befuddled Frenchman Monsieur Hulot, as they attempt to negotiate a bafflingly modern Paris – with highly comic results. Crammed with visual gags and an unconventional use of sound, Playtime is a lasting testament to a modern era tiptoeing on the edge of oblivion.
