My Uncle (1958)
This is the first Tati -movie I saw and it still remains as my favorite. The way how director compares the old times and modern times is incredible. You can do nothing but miss Mr. Hulot when he finally leaves this town. Also all the tricks that those kids do are great reminder of my own childhood. Mon oncle is very nostalgic movie in many sense and it's most touching moment is probably in the end when we see innocent little girl as a grown woman.

Trafic (1971)
Tati also in this criticizes modern culture which is too depressing and full of hurrying. Actually I would say this is a perfect road-movie. In the end it doesn't actually seem to be that big of a loss that Hulot with his group were too late.

Just as warm and full of life as Mon oncle. Perfect holiday movie that stands test of time incredibly well. Kids also play big part in this one. Tati proves that only kids or adults that have youthful mind can enjoy vacation perfectly. Especially the tennis scene is really funny.

Playtime (1967)
This is the most massive film by Tati. Mr. Hulot wanders inside big building and we can't be never sure why but that is not important. The most important is to notice all those little problems and surprising situations Hulot accidentally or sometimes not so accidentally take part of inside this modern and complex building.

On many occasions Hulot is not exactly even leading character because part of Tati's style is to include many interesting things on the background.

Jour de Fete (1949)
François, the postman is as interesting character as Mr. Hulot in my opinion. In the end he learns finally that you don't necessarily have to be so modern. When the old ways work, what's the point changing them to new ones?
