Play Time

One of the films that I have been introduced to this term in my video class is a filmed called Play Time by Jacques Tati.  It was filmed in Paris in 1967.  There are two very interesting things about this film: Ones is that it entire buildings were made so that the set for the film was entirely Modern and any iconic imagery of Paris was for the most part cut out.  The other interesting things is that there is no soundtrack for the film it relies entirely on the sound coming from the actions taking place.  The use of color is also remarkable, but I haven't watched the entire thing yet.  I did find the whole thing on youtube though.  Here is the first clips.
