Playtime is a 1967 French comedy film by Jacques Tati.
In "Playtime" Tati depicts a world that is possessed by money and exaggerated luxury, it has a rare technique and is dominated by a cold chilly architecture. The individual no longer exists in this world. The life of the people is determined by engineering; creativity no longer exists.

René Ferracci was a French poster artist who produced movie posters for French films as well as the French variation of the English poster. He was one of the first movie poster artists of the modern era to sign his name in print on the poster itself. His posters, particularly his work of the 60s, are considered as some of the more collectible movie posters of today. (source:
