I saw this film (it is more a documentary than a film, really) during a commercial flight, of all places, on a tiny seat screen. but I was mesmerized and enchanted. What pleasure it is to see these very short clips the Lumiere bothers produced between 1895 and 1905. Historically and visually, this compilation -presented with a smart running commentary for each chosen mini films- is a treasure. I am sure I had a smile on my face during the whole thing, and now I wish I could see it on a big screen, to see the details beyond the frame composition.
