| A voyage to narrative cinema.
This film is an amazing technical feat for any era but especially so when one regards it's utter uniqueness in relation to anything that had been created at the time. The film is an embodiment of cinematic revolution coming only eight years after the Edison shorts, which had been dazzling when first released, it made all other films look ordinary and unimaginative in the face of the abounding creativity that the film demonstrates.

The special effects are mind-blowing when taken in the context of the era in which it was released and the tight, structured narrative provides amusement and enjoyment for fans today, over 100 years after the film's release. The child-like creativity of the director enhances the enjoyment of the film and serves to create a world into which the audience is invited with the utmost enthusiasm.

A genuine feat of making what would have previously been considered impossible possible, this is a must see for all fans of cinema of all ages, as more than any other film this can lay claim to giving birth to cinema as we know it.
