Soap Bubbles (1906)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Les Bulles de savon vivantes

Decent trick film from Melies has a woman taking form out of a bubble. Melies plays the magician who continues to blow bubbles that take shape as various parts of this woman, which he then orders to take form. This here is certainly an entertaining little gem even if it isn't among the best work from the French master. I think the special effects hold up fairly well considering this film is now over one-hundred years old. There are a few funny bits and as usual Melies adds a lot of charm.
