This is not first film
15 January 2016 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

As I wrote in title, this is not first, nor it is second movie ever recorded.

First movie ever was 'Man walking around the corner', second is 'Roundhay garden scene'. This is third film by Louise le Prince, and third film overall.

But we can say that is first film in which we can see animal !

For me, this movie is not interesting like a 'Roundhay garden scene', because it is too simple, and have no piece of mystery like a mentioned film.

Lenght of this movie is like every other Le Prince movie, and don't take much time to watch it, just about 2-3 seconds.
