    This is not really a review, but as I found the product description lacking some key information about the films, I decided to provide here some important information on the films. I hope this information is useful to you.

    JOUR DE FETE (1949) - 70 minutes - Director: Jacques Tati - Starring: Jacques Tati, Guy Decomble - Genre: Comedy - Plot: When the faor comes to town and shows a movie of the efficient American postmen, the bumbling, ineffectual postman Francois sets off on a series of mishaps and misfortunes to do his job as good as they do.

    LE VACANCES DE MR. HUBLOT (1953) - 83 minutes - Director: Jacques Tati - Starring: Jacques Tati, Nathalie Pascaud - Genre: Comedy - Plot: Monsieur Hulot comes to a beachside hotel for a vacation, where he accidentally (but good-naturedly) causes havoc.

    MON ONCLE (1959) - 117 minutes - Director: Jacques Tati - Starring: Jacques Tati, Jean-Pierre Zola - Genre: Comedy - Plot: Monsieur Hulot visits the technology-driven world of his sister, brother-in-law, and nephew, but he can't quite fit into the surroundings.

    PLAYTIME (1967) - 115 minutes - Director: Jacques Tati - Starring: Jacques Tati, Barbara Dennek - Genre: Comedy - Plot: Caught in the tourist invasion, Hulot roams around Paris with a group of American tourists, causing chaos in his usual manner.

    TRAFIC (1971) - 96 minutes - Director: Jacques Tati - Starring: Jacques Tati, Marcel Fraval - Genre: Comedy - Plot: Mr. Hulot drives a recreational vehicle from Paris to Amsterdam in his usual comic, disasterous style.

    I'm still working my way through this set, but this has got to be the release of the year. Is it possible that 'Playtime' looks even better than the previous (now OOP) criterion blu? This is even better than the Jacques Demy set earlier this year - and that was a pretty outstanding release. It takes up a bit less shelf space, mainly because it's not dual format (yay!). The alternate versions (two for 'Jour de Fête,' one each for 'Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot' and 'Mon Oncle') don't show the same level of clarity and cleanup work as the primary versions, which all look stunning, but they are quite watchable. Extras are substantial. It's important to have these films in 1080p because Tati's films were impeccably stylized, and a major feature of his style was layers of detail and a lot of wide shots. There can be a great deal going on in the frame, so the additional detail, more than being just aesthetically beautiful, really does enhance the viewing experience. While it's not inaccurate to characterize these films as slapstick comedy, such a description really gives short shrift to the remarkable artistry here and the unique visual and aural qualities that characterize Tati's work. These are not plot-driven films, they are more like tapestries, and the humor isn't always of the laugh out loud variety (although sometimes it is). Cinematically, this collection is pure gold, as the level of craft on display here is of the very highest order.

    Like any other film auteur, you'll either love, enjoy, or hate Jacques Tati. Those with short attention spans should move on. If nothing else, Tati, the grandson of Vincent Van Gogh's picture framer (!), is one-of-a-kind, there's no filmmaker like him. You have to admire his precision and timing, honed during his years as a successful mime, his observational gifts are second to none. Those unfamiliar with his work, should rent "Mon Oncle" and "PlayTime" first, if you like them, you'll like this set. If you're a Tati fan, this set is manna from film heaven (hangin' out with Jacques, Roger?)! Here's what you really get, some of Amazon's info is wrong (the short synopsis are courtesy of Criterion)......

    DISC ONE:
    "Jour de Fête" ("The Big Day") (1949) In his enchanting debut feature, Jacques Tati stars as a fussbudget of a postman who is thrown for a loop when a traveling fair comes to his village. Even in this early work, Tati was brilliantly toying with the devices (silent visual gags, minimal yet deftly deployed sound effects) and exploring the theme (the absurdity of our increasing reliance on technology) that would define his cinema. (Run time: 86 minutes, Black & White/Hand-colored/Color), Aspect ratio: 1.

    Best comprehensive set ever assembled . Even if you have seen and enjoyed only one Tati film , buy this set . It is paradise . Even the illustrations on each film box are whimsical and perfect . I thought the 'Jules and Jim ' Criterion set was the penultimate , but then I found this one . The folks at Criterion are the smartest , both in terms of intelligence and style . Tati is soooooo cool .
