Films of Jacques Tati by Michel Chion

Book Description

Life never ceases to give homage to Jacques Tati. Be it on the beach, in an old part of town, or in the glamour of a modern city, we find everywhere the gags which have peopled such films as Les Vacances de Monsieur Hulot and Playtime. If a silhouette crosses us at a street corner, we are quickly reminded of certain scenes in Mon Oncle. Tati was a great film comic who deserves to be placed on the same level as Keaton and Chaplin. Tati created Monsieur Hulot who has now entered the world of screen legends. Above all, Jacques Tati was an exemplary artist who was not scared of taking risks or to invest his entire being in the making of his films. From Jour de fete to Parade, there is a Tati-World which this study invites us to discover. Michael Chion is a critic at Les Cashiers du cinema and has published numerous works which develop his theories on the art of sound in cinema (La Voix au cinema and Le Son au cinema). A musical composer, Michael Chion is also the author of Eponine, which was awarded the Prix Jean-Vigo in 1985.

Sound by Michel Chion Sound, Paperback (January 2016)

'Thin Red Line' by Michel Chion 'Thin Red Line', Paperback (November 2004)

'The Thin Red Line' is the third film to have been directed by Terence Malick. In this book, Michael Chion traces the connections to Malick's earlier work. He links 'The Thin Red Line' not only to James Jones's novel on which it is loosely based, but also to a tradition of American thought.
