Playtime (1967)

Playtime for Tati … M.Hulot hunts for Giffard in an office of Mondrian geometry
(source)

Yet another French film that’s set in Paris, this time without much of a plot and in a grayscale, futuristic Paris with boxy buildings (and cubicles) but Jacques Tati takes it up to another level with playful, highly visual humor reserved for those who are observant. Most times, the dialogue, if any, is intentionally reduced to a background buzz so I suppose it’s not a bad film for those learning French and trying to immerse themselves in a bit of French cinema. *cough*
