An Amusing & Creative Special Effects Feature
1 February 2005 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This Georges Méliès short movie features some amusing and creative special effects. The story is not meant to be the emphasis, but what there is of a story is rather amusing as well. The film uses the setting in an inn to create a good variety of camera tricks using a lot of the available props and characters.

The story starts with a rather cantankerous traveler arriving in an inn, and goes on to show his travails in (as the film was titled in English) "The Inn Where No Man Rests". Almost all of the camera effects come off quite well, and there is a particularly good one with a coat-rack. Aside from a couple of places where deterioration to the film has apparently harmed the effect, it all works well.

The story is similar to a fair number of Méliès features, especially "Le Diable Noir" (or "The Black Imp") from 1905. This one works well, and should not disappoint anyone who enjoys his style in this kind of feature.
