Here's a Melies film that doesn't contain any magic tricks or anything to do with the supernatural. In the film, four soldiers are against a brick wall trying to defend their city but the enemy eventually breaks in and uses dynamite to break through a wall. This short doesn't contain anything Melies is really known for but it does contain some nice action scenes within its short running time. The film has some nice direction and it's certainly better made than the majority of the action films made at this point in history. If you're new to the director then this isn't the best place to start but it's interesting for fans.
