Mysterious Portrait

Mysterious Portrait, The (1899)

** (out of 4)

aka Le Portrait mysterieux

Melies once again plays a magician who brings a portrait to life. This is certainly one of the director's gimmick films as he plays the picture in the middle of the floor while he stands to the side and makes the images come to life. One of the best sequences is when Melies puts himself in the picture while, at the same time, he stands outside and gives orders. The special effects are noticeable here but the film remains fun throughout its short running time. This isn't one of the director's greatest films but it is a cute one.
