Original German 33 inch x 46 inch Poster
Original German 33 inch x 46 inch Poster for the 1967 Jacques Tati French Comedy PLAYTIME starring Jacques Tati as Monsieur Hulot, Barbara Dennek, Jacqueline Lecomte, Valérie Camille, France Rumilly, France Delahalle and Rita Maiden.
Playtime takes as its setting an ultra-modern Paris where familiar landmarks appear only as fleeting reflections in the new buildings of glass and steel. Alternating between Hulot and a group of American tourists, Tati exploits the chaos just below the overly ordered surface of this brave new world. Again moving from one nearly wordless episode to another, Tati sends his alter ego off to make an appointment in a whirring, featureless office complex. He subsequently moves on to an exhibition of new inventions, meets an old friend at an aquarium-like apartment, wreaks havoc in a snooty new restaurant, and, again, almost falls in love.
