Added DiffLines:

* ShortLivedBigImpact: Tati directed only six movies over 25 years, and his last film ''Parade'' was a bare-bones film of a circus performance, so really only five. He is still hailed as one of the most innovative, influential film comedians ever.


Tati's comedies are known for their attacks on materialism and for having barely any dialogue. Many of them feature a character named Monsieur Hulot, played by Tati, who is in many ways the French equivalent of Creator/CharlieChaplin's famous Tramp (or, alternatively, a proto-Series/MrBean).

major influence on Series/MrBean.


** Sadly, after his movie ''Film/{{Playtime}}'' almost ruined him, Tati did end up writing a few more personal scripts that were a lot more depressing. One was called ''Confusion'' which ended with ''killing'' his most famous character, Mr. Hulot. The other script ''The Illusionist'' was eventually made [[WesternAnimation/TheIllusionist into an animated film by]] Creator/SylvainChomet.

Added DiffLines:

* SilenceIsGolden: Tati's films technically aren't silent as they all have a synchronized soundtrack of ambient noise. But there is very little dialogue in his films and most of what there is, is meaningless background chatter. The humor is usually visual, and occasionally auditory (like the guy in ''Playtime'' with very squeaky shoes), but never dialogue-based. If Tati's characters had been SpeakingSimlish the films would be almost exactly the same.
