Georges Melies Debut But Don't Expect Much
3 July 2013 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

This is the film debut of master cinema magician Georges Melies featuring three men having a game of cards and because of the name Melies perhaps one might have expected more because there is no trick photography . It's just a mundane static shot of three men playing cards . In fact even the title is misleading because watching it you're more aware that they're ordering wine from a waitress who keeps appearing and disappearing in to frame and two of the men constantly puffing away on ciggies . That said being the film debut of Melies it's place in important film history is assured and we should be thankful that unlike so many of the director's earlier works it still exists and is easily accessible on the internet in 2013
