Not Very Good at It
24 November 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A well-dressed man comes into a busy grocery store and gets a young man a job: his nephew perhaps. Now low man on the totem pole, he finds himself the subject of abuse in this slapstick comedy from Georges Melies.

With Pathe and Gaumont doing magic-based films to take away his markets, Melies decided to counter-attack by invading their territory with simple slapstick films. However, despite some interesting photography in which the protagonist approaches very close to the camera to produce as close to a close-up as he ever got, the simple one-scene, one-take slapstick lacks much in variety to distinguish it.
