Editorial Reviews

The Magnificent TATi (NTSC)

This internationally acclaimed artumentary tells the story of one of films most original and adored artist - the French cinema icon Jacques Tati. As the creator of classics such as ‘Mon Oncle’, ‘Les Vacance de Mr. Hulot’ & ‘Playtime’, Jacques Tati changed the way the world experiences movies. From Tati’s days as a mime on music-hall stages of 1930s Paris to his Oscar-wining years as ‘Mr. French-Cinema’ during the 1950-60s. Today Jacques Tati remains an inspiration to artists, directors, cartoonists, musicians and film lovers, his unique creative methods and original vision of the world remain powerful to all who experience his films. ‘The Magnificent TATi’ includes clips from every Jacques Tati film and interviews with Mike Mills, Frank Black, Sparks, David Bellos, Sylvain Chomet and many others.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See March 29, 2011
Don't miss this truly wonderful film. Tells Jacques Tati story in a way that makes you laugh (a lot) and cry (a little) while showing you tasters from every Tati film. Discusses Jacques Tati's avant-garde roots and offers real insight into Tati's unique genius. His courage in pushing the boundaries of cinema is explained and Tati's unique approach to narrative and use of sound is also explored in ways that are very stimulating - clips from a foley studio makes for great viewing. A short sequence on Mimes is very insightful and wonderfully filmed. Some interesting interview footage with Tati's assistant is nothing short of fascinating. Best film on a cinema director I have seen in years. A must for anyone into movies.
