It’s Playtime that soaks up all the attention, but Tati’s follow up and final feature is every bit as great, daring, and dense with aural and visual gags, a triptych road film that finds M. Hulot now employed as a designer for the Altra motor company (!), transporting a brand-new camper to an auto show in Amsterdam, and along the way displaying his total internal synthesis of the history of silent comedy in a string of tour-de-force comic pieces.
