Historical drama from the French master tells pretty much exactly what the title says. Now that I've watched a few of Melies non-magic films, I can't say that I'm too impressed. It seems there's never a clear story trying to be told and instead we just see one little scene that in the end really doesn't amount to anything worth noting. This film runs nearly four minutes and for the most part we just see Edward walking around. What does stand out about this film are the nice sets and wonderful costume design. These two things make the film worth watching once but the director has better films out there.
