Mon Oncle by Jacques Tati( Visual )

119 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Slapstick prevails again when Jacques Tati's eccentric, old- fashioned hero, Monsieur Hulot, is set loose in Villa Arpel, the geometric, oppressively ultramodern home of his brother-in-law, and in the antiseptic plastic hose factory where he gets a job. The second Hulot movie and Tati's first color film, Mon oncle is a supremely amusing satire of mechanized living and consumer society that earned the director the Academy Award for best foreign-language film.

10 editions published between 1953 and 2016 in French and English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five years in the making, the film marks the debut of Tati's altar ego, Mr. Hulot, a gangly and awkward Frenchman, perpetually the center and possible cause of a whirlwind of disasters, pratfalls, and mishaps. Tati's scrupulous attention to detail and almost arabesque sense of humor colors the entire film, from the departure of a gaggle of tourists from a malfunctioning train station to the minutiae of resort life

Legendary French director and performance artist Jacques Tati (Mon Oncle, Playtime) gathered a couple dozen performers (musicians, acrobats, jugglers, dancers, etc.) for a live performance filmed here from multiple angles, on stage and back stage, and within which personal mini-narratives are played out. His final film, this is a celebration of everything Tati loved, especially his passion for entertaining and finding the beauty and comic possibilities that exist within all of us
Trafic by Jacques Tati( Visual )

62 editions published between 1970 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Trafic was Jacques Tati's final outing as the bumbling, amiable Monsieur Hulot, one of cinema's most beloved comic screen personas, following his appearance in films such as Les Vacances de M. Hulot, Mon Oncle and Playtime. In Trafic he accompanies his car firm's new vehicle - an absurd Hulot-esque camper van - to a motor show in Amsterdam. This prescient satire on man's obsession with motorised transport mixes wonderful observational comedy with laugh-out-loud moments. Tati's typically subtle choreography of people and objects is a rewarding lesson in how to see the world anew."--Container

1 edition published in 2008 and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A unique and wonderful collection of 54 rare and restored short films from the inflammable years of cinema. Movies were once made on nitrate film stock, which has a chemical composition similar to gunpowder and is highly vulnerable to fire and decay. This remarkable seven-hour anthology, organized in eight thematic groups over three DVDs, presents amazing treasures from the vaults of Lobster Films in Paris and from the Blackhawk Films Collection, rescued during half a century of gathering movies from the nitrate era."--Container

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this enchanting debut feature, Jacques Tati stars as a fussbudget of a postman who is thrown for a loop when a traveling fair comes to his village. Tati shot this film simultaneously in black and white and in an untested color process that proved impossible to print copies of. In 1964 he re-edited it with added hand-colored footage, and in 1995 the full-color film was able to be released from the original color negatives
