It's late in the evening, and the ballet master's bed has been prepared for him. But he cannot take his mind off of his work, and instead of going to sleep he paces the floor and tries out dance steps. Finally, he goes to bed and falls asleep, but ballet dominates even his dreams. He sees two dancers who seem to come right into his room as they perform, and that's just the beginning.

Ballet Master's Dream, The (1903)

*** (out of 4)

aka Le Reve du maitre de ballet

Amusing, two minute film from Melies has him playing a ballet master who can't keep his work off his mind. Even when he tries to go to sleep images of the ballet are all around him. This is a pretty good little film that gives you a quick view of some of the magic created by the director. The background images are all creative and the ballet dancers are also somewhat fun. This type of film is one the director made several times but he's able to make this one come off very original and enjoyable. I'm sure everyone has had days where they're trying to sleep but can't get their work out of their mind and this film is a good sampling of that.
