In Jacques Tati's comedy classic, Playtime, Monsieur Hulot is on his way to contact an American official in Paris, but he gets caught in a tourist invasion and roams around the city with a group of American tourists, causing chaos in his usual manner. In Tati's authentic filmmaking style, we are shown Paris as a stylish maze of architecture filled with the most recent technological gadgets. The film is pure mid-century modern Paris overload!
