Very advanced for its time, though a tad confusing
The review for this is a lot like my review for ALI BABA AND THE FORTY THIEVES (1905)--from the same production company. Both films are beautiful and technically wonderful films--with hand-painted color film, decent sets for the day and some cute tricks to spice things up a bit. But, both films are pretty confusing and disjoint when seen today--due to a non-existent script (or so it seemed) and the odd problem with the Kino DVD. Kino released both films on the DVD "The Movies Begin Volume Three" and BOTH featured French language inter-title cards and NO English subtitles! So it's very pretty and amazing to see, but also kind of a mess as well.
