Storyline

About a half dozen passengers, a clergyman, a captain and boson are aboard a sea tossed vessel. As it lurches several of the passengers are sea-sick and throwing up into bowls held by other passengers. Meanwhile a male passenger downs a drink. When the seas get even rougher the most of the passengers head below. The clergyman, however, is knocked off his feet and falls through a hatchway. As he tries to get back on deck the tossing becomes even more turbulent causing most to lose their footing. All go below except for the captain who has stayed at his post throughout this whole event.

Between Calais and Dover (1897)

** (out of 4)

aka Entre Calals et Douvres

A ship is sailing in rough seas and the people aboard must try and get to the bottom of the boat. This film runs just over a minute and I think it was meant to be a comedy with all the people falling over themselves trying to reach safety. The comedy never really works because not too much is happening on the ship. The camera stays place throughout with the boat rocking from side to side and that's pretty much it. This is certainly one of director Melies lesser films and this is for fans only. If you're new to the director then there are better films to watch.
