DIRECTOR: JACQUES TATI

CAST: JACQUES TATI, MARCEL FRAVAL, HONORé BOSTEL, FRANçOIS MAISONGROSSE

It’s Playtime that soaks up all the attention, but Tati’s follow up and final feature is every bit as great, daring, and dense with aural and visual gags, a triptych road film that finds M. Hulot now employed as a designer for the Altra motor company (!), transporting a brand-new camper to an auto show in Amsterdam, and along the way displaying his total internal synthesis of the history of silent comedy in a string of tour-de-force comic pieces.

Trafic is screening as part of Metrograph A to Z,a collection of films we think everybody should see. Click here for more info.
