...amazing what someone can do in less than 60 seconds in a film. I loved it.
Amazing for the time period...
Charming introduction to Melies, whose genius as an illusionist translated so well to the burgeoning art of movie making.
Imagine! It's the end of the 19th Century and you are watching a Georges Méliès movie--in color! COLOR! What would it been like to see color images on a movie screen for the first time?
The laborous, hand-tinted color process here adds to the surreal mood of the film, in pulasating, pulpy hues that seem to be alive. It gives us a moment to pause and marvel at this visual wonder as audiences did over a century ago. Imagine!
I love these Melies films! No matter how short....
NOW YOU SEE IT
It is really amazing that the first major filmmaker brought the level of artistry to such a jaw-dropping level.
Looks like an intense amount of work went into such a short piece. Interesting to see something from the 1800's no less.
Wonderful little 60 second tale...short and very sweet.
retro special effects somehow more enjoyable than what we've got now
I can not imagine how long it took to color each frame. Beautiful.
Interesting early colorized short film. Not too scary, though.
It was to short to make an opinion.
Quick, but a fun example of hand colored silent movies, by the Hugo uncle. We watched several. Imaginative, and great costuming of the era, and also early sci fi.
Fascinating! It's hard to fathom a movie from 115 years ago.
Loving hand colorized. Oft told story done well.
