The Museum of Modern Art will present a 10-film retrospective of the French screenwriter, director, and actor Jacques Tati December 18 through January 2, 2010. "Jacques Tati" features newly struck 35mm prints of his six feature films, including restorations of "M. Hulot’s Holiday" (1953), "Mon Oncle" (1958), and "Playtime" (1967), his long-dreamed-of colorized version of "Jour de fête" (1949), "Traffic" (1971), and the rarely screened "Parade" (1974), as well as three short sketch comedies. Complementing these is Claude Autant-Lara’s wartime fantasy "Sylvie et le fantôme" (1945), featuring a performance by Tati. The opening night screening of "Playtime" on December 18 will be introduced by authors/theater directors Macha Makeïeff and Jérôme Deschamps, the founders of Les Films de Mon Oncle. [Andy Lauer]
