Decent film from Melies has him playing a magician who does a few tricks including making a woman disappear. This is certainly one of the lazier shorts from the director has it doesn't even run a minute and the two special effects we see had been done better in previous films. I'm not sure what Melies was going for here but I wouldn't call this one of his better films. The effects are nice as I said but we've seen them before so this short really doesn't stick out compared to this other work.
