Clockmaker's Dream, The (1904)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Le reve de l'horloger

An elderly clockmaker falls asleep and three women appear to show him an easier way to build various clocks. If you're new to the French master then you might be impressed by some of the visuals here but others are probably going to be somewhat bored here. This is certainly far from a bad film but it is rather bland considering some of the other films the director made in his career. The special effects are decent, there are a few laughs and the technique is good but it's all rather bland and light.
