Decent magic film from Melies has him playing a warlock like character who turns flames into a woman and then back into flames again. This one here will probably be for fans of the director only as there's not that typical magic that comes along with many of the master's best work. There's a few impressive tricks here but those new to the director would certainly want to watch one of his great works before this one. I did like the effects of the fire turning into the woman and I'm sure this trick really knocked people for a loop back in 1904. The films runs just under three-minutes and is a decent time killer but that's about it.
