Set in a modernist version of Paris, Playtime was remarkable for its vast set – christened Tativille – which anticipated the later rise of office cubicle culture. It is a compelling portrait of the 1960s workspace. Structured in six se-quences, it features Monsieur Hulot, a befuddled Frenchman lost in the new modernity of Paris. The film is introduced by Alice Rawsthorn, who writes about design in the International New York Times. She is also a columnist for Frieze magazine and an author, whose latest book, the critically acclaimed Hello World: Where Design Meets Life.
