70mm!

PLAYTIME, 1967, Janus Films, 126 min. Another chance to see the fully restored Jacques Tati masterpiece PLAYTIME, which was conceived originally as a 70mm viewing experience, then lost for over 30 years (there were only 35mm prints left of a cut version) and finally rescued by Tati's daughter, Sophie Tatischeff, and Jerome Deschamps. Monsieur Hulot must contact an American official in Paris, but he gets lost in a stylish maze of modern architecture filled with the latest gadgets. Caught in a tourist invasion, Hulot roams around Paris with a group of American tourists, causing chaos in his usual manner. The star of the film: the city built by Tati and called Tativille/Taticity. From surprise to surprise, it’s an exquisite and divine experience! François Truffaut, writing to Jacques Tati about PLAYTIME, said simply, "A film from another planet." More on this film <http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062136/>. Also playing at the Aero <../Aero/70mm_2008.htm>. View Trailer. <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGv3FrXIToI>
