The wild rise and fall of the comedy genius, actor, director, and laughter athlete Jacques Tati—or how the creator of the famous Monsieur Hulot stole the heart of the French, and then of the world, through laughter, leaping from one success to another, rising always higher — until he flew a bit too close to the sun. A fascinating dive into the creative process of this extraordinary director.
