Among the director's best.
14 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Segundo de Chomón is really working at his best in "Easter Eggs". While the film might have a few rough edges where he started and stopped the camera, much of this was done rather seamlessly and it's one of his better efforts. It didn't hurt that the nice hand-stenciled work by the women at the Pathé studio's assembly line did a terrific job of painting portions of the film to make it appear colored--or at least partially colored.

Julienne Mathieu (the director's wife) stars in this one. She walks out on a nice little stage and begins making giant eggs appear out of no where. Then, she opens each one to reveal dancers who do a nice little dance in costume. The tricks are really lovely and the only complaint I have is that at four minutes, perhaps it went on too long and might have improved with a couple less dances. Still, it's an incredible film to see today and ample proof that some real artists were at work in the early cinema.
