Arguably the most remarkable director of serials in the early 1900s, Louis Feuillade tries his hand at a domestic drama with this one-reeler. CUSTODY OF THE CHILD tumbles through tear-jerker territory when a family is broken apart.

I am impressed with everything Feuilade packs into 11 minutes. Well shot little short.

Very sweet. I thought the acting was very good or perhaps I should say the gesticulating was good. Nice to see a happy ending. Note: same desk and chairs in the laundry as well as at the police station - I didn't notice the wallpaper, but probably same set room. One camera angle throughout as if simply filming a stage play.
