  • "Jacques Tati stars as his world-famous character, Mr. Hulot, in this halarious romp concerning Hulot's difficulty in coping with modern life. Everything seems to be against him--including a glass-fronted airport, a new restaurant, and even a supermarket. Tati is the master of sight and sound gags, and Playtime is a feast of brilliance, with a climax you won't forget."
  • "A group of American tourists arrive in Paris, only to find its mass of skyscrapers and office blocks indistinguishable from those of any other big city. Whenever the path of Monsieur Hulot (Tati) crosses that of the group as everyone copes with modern life, comedy ensues."

Quant à Monsieur Hulot, il est à la recherche du chef de service mais se perd dans cet immense aéroport à l'architecture déroutante. Il fait connaissance avec une jeune américaine à qui il ne pourra dire adieu, coincé par un guichet automatique..."

  • "French comedian Tati stars as Mr. Hulot, who has difficulty coping with modern life. Everything seems to be against him, even a supermarket."
  • "Tati's comedy the third of his films to feature the gangling form of Monsieur Hulot, is a surreal, comic vision of mankind's battle against the overwhelming depersonalization of modern city life. In his vision of studio-built modern Paris, virtually ten years in the planning and realisation, and originally shot on 70 mm. there is no clear definition between subject and background. Every character, Hulot included, has the status of an extra. Every scene is in long shot so that the subject is everything that appears in the shot where several points of interest compete independently for the viewer's attention. In a sense the viewer has the possibility during several viewings of creating a different movie each time."

  • "Jacques Tati's spectacular cinematic art reached its peak in the achievement of this film, PLAYTIME. Marking the third appearance of Tati's Mr. Magoo-like character, Mr. Hulot, PLAYTIME takes as its subject modern technology and its sometimes disastrous and always hilarious effects on the people living within it. As in most Tati films, a minimal plot (the parallel paths of Hulot and a group of American tourists), is held together by a seamless ballet of visual, aural, and conceptual gags."

  • "Une jeune américaine débarque à Orly parmi d'autres touristes, pour visiter Paris. Elle est conduite à son hôtel, un immense building de verre. C'est là que M. Hulot a un rendez-vous important avec un certain M. Gifford qu'il ne parvient pas à joindre, perdu dans un dédale de couloirs et de bureaux. Le soir, il participe à l'inauguration du Royal Garden. Les travaux étant à peine achevés, la soirée tourne à la catastrophe. Mais, du moins, M. Hulot peut-il faire la connaissance de la jeune américaine. Lorsqu'elle repart à l'aube, il ne peut lui faire ses adieux, restant prisonnier d'un guichet automatique."

  • "Follows Mr. Hulot, Tati's lovable alter ego, on his way to a business appointment that he will never keep. Continually derailed by misleading signs and high-tech gadgets, Hulot's path crosses hilariously with tourists searching in vain for old Paris. Charming vignettes lead to a riotous final sequence, in which a new restaurant collapses under the weight of its own technology."

  • "Tati's comedy is path-breaking modernist work. He does not only depart from the classical system but like Ozu and Bresson set up an alternative filmic system. In his vision of studio-built modern Paris, virtually ten years in the planning and realisation, and originally shot on 70 mm. there is no clear definition between subject and background. Every character, Hulot included, has the status of an extra. Every scene is in long shot so that the subject is everything that appears in the shot where several points of interest compete independently for the viewer's attention. In a sense the viewer has the possibility during several viewings of creating a different movie each time."
