Regarded by many as Jacques Tati’s masterpiece, Playtime is a surreal, comic vision of mankind’s battle against the overwhelming depersonalisation of modern life. 
Tati stars as the hapless Hulot, who ambles through the massive metropolis specially constructed for the film – one of the most ambitious and imaginative film sets ever to grace the screen.  The film is a multi-layered symphony of sight and sound gags.  Jokes unfold in various parts of the frame simultaneously and the soundtrack – a meticulously composed cacophony of footsteps, gibberish, and lounge music – only adds to the absurdity.
