Critic Reviews for Parade
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.
The more modest 1971 comedy Trafic and the 1974 made-for-Swedish-TV movie Parade are both sweet and entertaining, with moments of pure Tati magic.
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.
