The Baby and the Bully
26 July 2015 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Childish Quarrel (1896)

This 45 second movie from Lumiere is pretty entertaining because it proves that there were bullies a hundred years ago. The set up is pretty simple as we have two babies in high chairs facing the camera. One then starts to bully the other. Obviously there's not too much plot here but that's okay because overall it's a fairly charming little film that shows one poor baby having its items stolen by the other. There's certainly nothing ground-breaking with this film but a lot of times it seems filmmakers would just turn the camera on and hope that something entertaining would happen. Well, what happens here was entertaining.
