I really enjoyed this film
15 January 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I saw this film while in Ireland and it was very good. It is hard to see a film on a film-maker because you always want to see the subjects films more than a documentary about the film- maker - I hope this makes sense. Well, 'The Magnificent Tati' did a very good job of letting you have a small taste of all of Tati's work and enabled me for the first time to watch how his films evolved from basic slap-stick to high-art, then back to slap-stick circus performance. I think I really like this documentary however I need to see it again and I am not sure how that will possible as I checked and there are no DVDs of it yet. So I recommend this film but I recommend Tati's actual films such as Les Vacance De M. Hulot or Jour De Fete more, watch them and get the whole story of Tati form his films - they say it all. In all fairness I respect the makers of 'The Magnificent Tati for making a film that is long overdue and will certainly spread Tati's gift with people outside of France.
