Not for everyone but definitely original. Must be seen in 70mm and will leave a smile on your face if you're on Tati's wavelength.

One of the classics

Jacques Tati's is a one-of-a-kind comedy about living in the modern world, and it's so subtly and densely packed with visual gags that you MUST see it in the theater (in 70mm if possible). Not to be missed!

Smart, funny social criticism through physical comedy

Went to the 70mm screenng of Jacques Tati's "Playtime" at the Egyptian Theater. The movie looked great, like a brand new print. The sound was pretty good, though I don't think it would suffer from modernization. The movie itself is brilliant, using physical comedy (slapstick) to critique consumer society and globalization. Highly recommended.

what an amazing treat to see this film in 70mm, it is such a visually stuning film, there is so much going on, so much to see, if you have a chance to see this film on the big screen, do it, small screans can not do it justice.

A truly democratic film. This is unlike any other cinematic experience and can be understood on any human level.
