Personal Quote:

[on Playtime] It's a little bit like a ballet. At the beginning, the people's movements always follow the architecture, they never make a curve, they go from one line to another. The more the picture continues, the more the people dance, and start to make curves, and turn around, and start to be absolutely round - because we have decided that we're still there. That's what I like. See more »

Trivia:

During WWII, he lived in a small house in Vijon, Indre, in the Centre of France. He promised his neighbors to shoot his movie there and in St-Sévère which was the biggest town around. It was Jour de Fête. See more »

Trademark:

The leading character in almost all of Tati's movies is the eccentric Mr. Hulot: a conservative, goofy yet good-willing character who seems to be doomed to do everything wrong in the modern world. See more »
