Somehow, on traffic, again

"The quiet or muffled world of Tati's films is a central ingredient in his ability to call attention to everyday things. It is a rather nuanced stroke of genius that in a world of excessive noise, Tati should concentrate on the seemingly unimportant facets of such a world. He strips the human environment to its bare minimum. He exorcises conversation, as if to suggest that today there is already too much talking."

Indeed. Remenbering Playtime, Sam Renseiw caught some recent traffic footage in the middle of the Champs-Elyssees. View the swift Parisian moves by clicking here or zebra-mouse in above. (patafilm # 278, 00'33'', 2.5 MB, Quicktime/mov - Streaming Flash version for PC users at Blip-tv)
