As of October 13th, 2012, this movie has a 5.0 vote based on the ratings of 42 users. I strongly invite you not to consider those votes, for a very simple reason: the movie they have seen is actually a 1 minute black and white fragment; only recently an (almost) complete copy of the movie has been found and restored. It now runs 12 minutes and 30 seconds, and it's not black and white but actually hand-tinted. And what a wonderful movie it is! A must-see for any silent movie lover, in the spirit of Voyage dans la lune. Without spoiling anything, it contains a trick Méliès never used before and rarely since; and in just 13 minutes manages to capture the spirit of Daniel Defoe's novel, and at the same time to be a "truly" Méliès movie.
