Storyline

A workman glues an advertisement in the center of other adverts on an outside wall along a city walk. It's an ad for "love on credit," featuring a comely lass. The posters come to life, interacting with the characters in the surrounding adverts: a publican's wife is jealous of his talking to the midnight cutie; a cook dumps food on a character beneath him. Then, two flics walk by, and the characters become inanimate. After the cops walk on, life returns. The poster people attack a swell beneath the wall, and he runs for the cops. They return, and the wall falls on them, revealing a gate behind which the poster folks laugh. Chaos ensues. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Wonder Wall
26 October 2009 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

Another bizarre little tale from the warped imagination of French pioneer Georges Melies, this short film lacks his usual smooth technique but compensates by delivering a truly original and entertaining piece of nonsense.

The action centres around a set of posters that come to life and interact with each other and, eventually, on passers-by. The police get involved and it's not long before the arm of the law is being pelted with flour and soaked with liquor. Although the use of stop-motion here is a little ragged, Melies pretty much gets as much mileage as it is possible to get out of a wall full of posters...
