Playtime (1967, 115 min.)

Playtime is Jacques Tati’s attempt to answer this question: in the midst of an increasingly impersonal world, how do we keep our humanity? Critics consensus: A remarkable achievement, Playtime packs every scene with sight gags and characters that both celebrates and satirizes the urbanization of modern life.

“Playtime is a peculiar, mysterious, magical film.” – Roger Ebert
