Loved it
9 July 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Fun film about Jacques Tati, good way to learn about his story and his films. I think the film was well done and the interviews are excellent. My big complaint is that it is a rather short film. I think there is much about Jacques Tati that was left out. On the other hand they do explain things in a simple way and offer an easy way to understand Jacques Tati's work, this is needed for many people who just don't like or get Jacques Tati, this is very good. The film has a very interesting section on sound design, an area Jacques Tati excelled in, this was the best part of the film I thought. If you can see this film it will only make you enjoy Jacques Tati more.
