As the title suggests, a woman returns home from a ball and begins to get undressed with the help of her servant. I guess this film would enter the genre of those early films that tried to show a little bit of nudity for the male viewers. There's some nudity in this film that will certainly make some viewers raise their eyes but this did happen in quite a few shorts of this era. There's really nothing here that stands out as being a film from Melies but this works best as a history lesson of early nudity on film. It's also worth noting that when you watch the film pay attention to the servant towards the end of the movie as she is looking off screen and talking, apparently the director, asking if he has finished filming.
