Storyline

A well-dressed man pours a glass of Champagne for a young woman who is sitting with him at a dining table. She's costumed, wearing a mask and cape. He removes the mask and cape, revealing a smiling beauty. He takes her in his arms to kiss her; she cooperates. The dream ends, and reality intrudes in the form of an old couple in bed, he kissing her, she enthusiastically willing. He realizes he's back in reality. Is the kiss at an end?

Fun to watch, but a 100% rip-off of another film
15 September 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

It just so happens that the same night I watched this very early silent short, I also watched a film by George Albert Smith that was made one year earlier--entitled "Let Me Dream Again". And, low and behold, the two films were nearly 100% identical!! This film (Rêve et réalité) was definitely not inspired from Smith's--it was a complete rip-off---being a wonderful example of early plagiarism. This was not a unique thing, as there were so many tiny studios in the early days and copying others' films wasn't unusual. But, in this case it's more than re-making the other film--it's stealing it.

Regardless of the spotty pedigree, this still is a pretty funny film. It features an old guy making out with a pretty young lady--and it all turns out to be too good to be true. This is one of the few early films that still will get you to laugh today--no small accomplishment.
