Le marriage de Victoire (1907)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka How Bridget's Lover Escaped

I've never really cared for Georges Melies' comedies but this one here turned out not to be too bad. In the film, a man is in a room with his lover when a group of policemen come in and start to chase him on the roof. That's pretty much the entire "story" of this 8-minute movie, which shows that the director could work without the special effects that he was best known for. I think the real star of this movie is the man who plays the lover because he's got such a natural comic timing that you really can't help but be entertained by everything he does. He's just got a certain type of walk and a certain type of grace that really helps carry the film and I think he did a very good job with the comedy. The men playing the police officers really aren't all that impressive but none of them are bad enough to where it hurts the film. I do think the film runs a bit too long as we basically have a one-note joke that just keeps repeating itself. After a few slapstick moments on the roof they come back into the room where the same stuff just keeps happening.
