About Jacques Tati

  • Jacques Tati (French: [tati]; born Jacques Tatischeff, pronounced [tati??f]; 9 October 1907 – 5 November 1982) was a French mime, filmmaker, actor, and screenwriter.
  • Throughout his long career, he worked as a comic actor, writer, and director.
  • In a poll conducted by Entertainment Weekly of the Greatest Movie Directors, Tati was voted the 46th greatest of all time.
  • With only six feature-length films to his credit as director, he directed fewer films than any other director on this list of 50. Tati's Playtime (1967) ranked 43rd in the 2012 Sight & Sound critics' poll of the greatest films ever made.As David Bellos puts it, "Tati, from l'Ecole des facteurs to Playtime, is the epitome of what an auteur is (in film theory) supposed to be: the controlling mind behind a vision of the world on film".
