Playtime (1967) | Jacques Tati | 125 min
  
A gloriously choreographed, surreal comedy about confusion In an age of high technology, Playtime is famous for its enormous, specially constructed set and background stage, known as 'Tativille', which made it to that point one of the most expensive films in history.
