Jacques Tati Retrospective at the Busan Cinematheque

Jacques Tati


The Busan cinematheque is screening all six of Jacques Tati’s features and three of his shorts June 16 through June 21. Often compared to Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, the French filmmaker (who also stars in nearly all of his works) is famous for creating one of cinema’s most beloved comic characters, Mr. Hulot – a clumsy goofball easily recognizable by his raincoat, pipe and umbrella. All films are in French with English subtitles, with the exception of “The Big Day.”


School for Postmen (1947)

Soigne ton Gauche (1936)

Evening Classes (1967)

*The three shorts will be screened successively for the price of one ticket.

Mr. Hulot’s Holiday (1953)

My Uncle (1958)

Playtime (1967)
