Trafic by Jacques Tati( Visual )

12 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in French and English and held by 513 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
