Fifth about The Seventh


TraficTrafic: Jacques Tati is not subtle in presenting his ideas about automobiles in this film; the theme is dear to him, but it’s not defended here as endearingly or interestingly. Nevertheless, there are many visual gags that are greatly inspired, even if the whole is a bit uneven and slow to start; as usual, there is great precision in what is being shown (visually, the film is typically very attractive). Tati dominates this character; Maria Kimberly is a fine presence (and the most developed character). Charles Dumont’s score is very nice. Maybe a minor Tati, but that’s way above the bar.
