Cinemasters: Jacques Tati at GFT, Summer 2018

hulos holiay

The words ‘unique’, ‘iconic’ and ‘visionary’ are often used to describe filmmakers who craft our favourite movie-going experiences, but few exemplify these descriptors like Jacques Tati. The French comic genius only made a handful of films between 1949 – 1971, and yet established a style so brilliant that he remains unequalled (though many have tried). Accessible to young and old alike, his films can be appreciated on many levels – for their slapstick comedy, their artful composition and their perfect evocation of French post-war mentality – and GFT is delighted to bring them back to the big screen this summer.
