• Dir: Jacques Tati

  • France/Sweden, 1974, French, 89 min, DCP

  • Cast: Jacques Tati, Karl Kossmayer, The Williamses

Based on Tati’s music-hall act “Sporting Impressions,” Parade was shot largely on video as a Swedish television production. Although Tati returns to his roots as a mime and assumes the role of the circus ringmaster, he is no more at the center of Parade than Mr. Hulot was in PlayTime. Rather, the film continues Tati’s democratic celebration of the everyman – a spectacle focused not on a central character, but in which everyone gets to participate, with audience members being as much the source of gags as the performers on stage.

TASCHEN will offer three newly released “Jacques Tati. The Complete Works” box sets (worth HK$2,000) in three selected Cine Fan screenings of “The Logic of Illusion: Jacques Tati” to lovers of Jacques Tati. The more screenings you watch, the higher the chance!
