Playing Cards (1896)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Une Partie de cartes

This here was the first film ever directed by Georges Melies and it runs just over a minute and the title pretty much tells you all you need to know when it comes to the story. Three men sit around playing cards and ordering drinks. The magic that Melies brought to the screen can't be spotted here as this short is pretty much like countless others of the era as it just shows you brief things being done and in this case it's card playing. The camera stays put the entire film as the action takes place in front of it. This certainly isn't classic Melies but everyone had to start somewhere.
