Jacques Tati's last film -- his least-known work, shot mostly on videotape for Swedish television -- is seldom shown, but it's a far greater achievement than most accounts would lead you to expect.
Jacques Tati's Parade is such a slight and simple film that its subject almost seems to be self-effacing.
It can't aspire to the meticulous mise en scène of his big screen work; and one feels saddened that this great director should have found no other outlet for his genius.
More familiar and repetitive than inventive, Tati's last film doesn't begin to compare to his previous masterpieces.
A distillation not of Jacques Tati per se, but of communal spectacle, creativity and creation, simply -- hence, cinema.
Tati's final film -- made originally for Swedish television -- and it's not up to much.
