Slapstick
8 February 2010 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This Melies piece -- listed in the DVD release as "Le Marriage de Victorine" as opposed to the IMDb title -- is very much a slapstick chase in the mode of the period, as Victorine's flic boyfriend escapes from the kitchen and is pursued on rooftop by his unsuspecting fellow officers.

However, unlike the typical slapstick chase of the period in which people climb up sheer surfaces, setting gravity at naught, Melies and his company treat the forces of nature with greater respect as people slip down slate roofs and wind up impaled on iron fences.

In another four years, Mack Sennett in America -- who was already in the field, having written and starred in Griffith's production of THE CURTAIN POLE in 1908 -- would turn the entire field of slapstick upside down, but for the moment, this is a good entry in the genre.
