Le Recit du colonel (1907)

*** (out of 4)

A dinner party is behind held when the oldest man there is asked to tell one of his famous stories. The nutty guy then goes into a war story but he begins to suffer some sort of flashback and starts re-enacting the events, which just leads to the guests being injured. In terms of story this Gaumont film really doesn't offer anything that we haven't seen in the work of Edison or Biograph but there are enough laughs here to make it worth viewing. I think the biggest key are actually all of the supporting players sitting around the dinner table because they're what makes the comedy work so well. We get the old man going crazy but it's the reactions of those around the table that get the laughs. The way they all shake in fear and eventually take off running is what made me laugh. The timing of them was done extremely well. In terms of directing there's really nothing overly special here as the camera pretty much stays in place and Feuillade just lets the action go. I'm sure many current film goers won't find anything special here but those fans of early cinema should be entertained by the comedy and action.
