Fifth about The Seventh

Playtime

PlaytimePlaytime: Jacques Tati’s film makes the bold choice to not have much of a story; it takes this idea one step further, and steers away from dialogues (which would certainly decrease the alienation felt) any chance the characters could open up more. This, of course, plays right at the hands of the theme Tati presents, and it’s meticulously made, using all tools available. Every frame is incredibly rich, busy in every corner, detailed in its geometry and action. Sound design is, likewise, used to maximize the effect (both comic and alienating). All of that makes the movie a rich, unconventional experience.
