Jacques Tati (1907 – 1982) was a French filmmaker.

Thematically, Tati often touched upon Western society's obsession with material goods, particularly American-style consumerism, the pressure cooker environment of modern society, the superficiality of relationships among France's various social classes, and the cold and often impractical nature of space-age technology and design, most notably in Mon Oncle, Playtime, and Trafic.

Tati is often compared to Buster Keaton before him and Rowan Atkinson after.
