20,000 Dancing Girls Under the Sea
23 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pretty much the same as the Trip to the Moon, only now we are heading in the other direction. A man who seems to be a mime gets in a submarine after dancing around and bowing and showing off in front of another array of women, wearing a kind of military uniform. Before he reaches the bottom, we see all kinds of sea creatures floating around (cardboard cut outs, I guess) and, most importantly, mermaids (dancing girls). In reality, a third of this already short feature is a bunch of prancing and posing. Once our hero gets to the bottom, he is inundated with dangerous fish, crabs, and anemones. This has nothing to do with the Jules Verne book, but Melies probably could have cared less. It's another groundbreaking little film, though it is none the worse for wear. It also has the most tired of clichéd endings.
