The legendary Baron Münchausen (an actual German aristocrat well-known for his exaggerated stories) has been portrayed many times in dozens of films over the years. In this telling by the equally remarkable Georges Méliès, Münchausen has spent an evening dining with his friends. He retires for the night still reeling a bit from drink. In the depths of sleep, the Baron is visited by an array of phantoms and spectres, leading to a final confrontation in the mirror above his bed!

Not the Terry Gilliam version...but from the man who invented modern filmmaking, Georges Melies. With all of the macabre imagination, sardonic humor and detailed settings of the master.
one bad trip
Kind of interesting if you are interested in early film and special effects. Fun and not too long.
Ok. Fun to watch!
Bizzare yet very entertaining!
Like all of his films, this one is super ambitious and surreal. The sets, costumes, and acrobats are superb!
