Melies' Cheese

The Skipping Cheeses (1907)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Les Fromages automobiles

More charming than entertaining, this short from George Melies is a comedy and not a trick film. The story is pretty simple as a group of people on a streetcar who get upset when a woman enters and stinks the place up with her cheese. The woman is arrested and taken away and soon the cheese is following for some revenge. THE SKIPPING CHEESES isn't a complete success but fans of the director should at least get a smile out of it. I think the biggest problem is the narration, which really doesn't add anything that we couldn't have seen with our own eyes. Another problem is that the comedy early on just doesn't work well enough as I didn't laugh a single time. Now, once the cheese started to go for its revenge is when the movie picked up and I must say that I was shocked that Melies had the courage to do what he did to the policeman. I won't spoil it but it's certainly not what you'd expect.
