Moonlight Serenade

Moonlight Serenade, A (1904)

*** (out of 4)

aka Au clair de la lune ou Pierrot malheureux

A lonely man goes to the house of his love to play guitar for her but (what appears to be) her father kicks him out. Soon the moon and its princess come towards the man and offers him something better. This is a pretty good little fantasy from the French master that has some funny moments with the father as well as some nice special effects. The moon from the director's A Trip to the Moon makes an appearance here with a few slight alterations. The highlight of the film is certainly when the man is able to jump on the moon and be taken away.
