Storyline

A number of guests arrive at a hostelry, and preparatory to rest themselves after their long journey, they put their clothes out in the hall for the valet to press trousers and polish boots. The valet gathers up the heap and takes it into another room. He works long and hard and finally each piece looks like new: he deposits the outfit at each door of the room occupied by the guests and departs. In a short while the guests want to dress and each takes in the bundle at his door, but soon they discover that the valet mixed their belongings and each angrily examines the misfit and goes for the servant, who flees. A chase from room to room in the hotel takes place, and finally the valet gets hack to the room where the clothes are piled up. A bright thought strikes him: he sets fire to the heap and it burns merrily. The firemen arrive and add to the discomfiture of the guests by turning the hose on them.

Georges Melies: First Wizard of Cinema 1896-1913
6 January 2016 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I love his films.Just love.So,my review's of his films will be same,Pardon me for my laziness and repetition,but I can't something new,because his films are the same in fact,each his film is the great magic presentation(no story,just illusion) and you must watch all of them in one breath. He made a huge impact on world culture.here is quote from Wikipedia: "Walt Disney, on being presented with the Legion of Honour in 1936, expressed gratitude to Méliès and his fellow pioneer Émile Cohl, saying they "discovered the means of placing poetry within the reach of the man in the street."Terry Gilliam has called Méliès "the first great film magician," adding: "His joyous sense of fun and ability to astound were a big influence on both my early animations and then my live- action films… Of course, Méliès still has a tight creative grip on me." The 2007 novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret, and 2011 film Hugo based on it, center on the later life of Méliès, who is played by Ben Kingsley in the film.Méliès was inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 2015.
