Trafic was Jacques Tati's last outing as the bumbling, amiable Monsieur Hulot, one of cinema's most beloved comic 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 a 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.
