An amazing look into early film making by the French pioneer Georges Méliès, a man who was way before his time (see Voyage dans la lune, Le (1902) )
A man is murdered and the killer bought to justice by the guillotine. What really struck me as amazing about this film was the depth of imagination with the storytelling, especially a dream sequence where the man waiting for his ultimate faith has visions... I was wanting to find out what the real significance of this was if anyone could please enlighten us that would be great! There are no title cards for this silent film.
I recommend this to anyone with a fascination for the history of film making.
