These are his major works:
- Jour De Fete (1949): Features more dialogue than in his other films; though the humor is still mostly visual.
- Mr. Hulot's Holiday (1953): The first of Tati's works starring Hulot. Later remade in English as Mr. Bean's Holiday.
- Mon Oncle (1958): Another Hulot outing, and Tati's first film in color.
- Playtime (1967): Which not only dispenses with meaningful dialogue, but also with lead actors (although Hulot does pop up intermittently).
- Trafic (1971): The swan song of Hulot.
- Parade (1974)
- The Illusionist (2010): An animated film made 25 years after Tati's death, based on one of his scripts, by a Canadian filmmaker named Sylvain Chomet. It is notable for its autobiographical elements concerning Tati and his daughter.
