Same Old Song and Dance
20 August 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

An Indian Sorcerer (1908)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Le Fakir de Singapour

Georges Melies returns to his roots of trick films with this one here clocking in just under five-minutes. A sorcerer turns a small egg into a bigger one and keeps repeating this trick until the egg is large enough to do other things including delivering children. AN Indian SORCERER is mildly entertaining but at the same time there's no getting around the fact that it's pretty much the same old song and dance that we had seen for nearly ten years. Melies seems to be in fine shape as he runs around the stage doing his tricks but there's just something missing when you watch it. I think the best of the director's work features a fantasy and magic element, which is simply not here. Yes, the tricks are entertaining and the editing is so much better than in previous films but that magic is still gone.
