With a background in music hall and mime performance, Tati steadily built an ever more ambitious movie career that ultimately raised sight-gag comedy to the level of high art. . This set gathers his six hilarious features; Jour de fete, Monsieur Hulot's Holiday, Mon oncle, PlayTime, Trafic, and Parade, along with seven delightful Tati-related short films.
