Jean-Paul Marat's assassination is re-enacted for this film from the Lumiere Brothers. I'll let you do your own research on the death of Marat but this film does an okay job at re-creating it. Obviously with a running time under a minute you really can't do the subject much justice but we basically see the man murdered and then the guilty person arrested and taken from the woman. Actually, you can't even tell how Marat is murdered here but that doesn't take away from the fun. I found this film to be pretty entertaining even though you'll never really know what's going on in regards to the real case. Still, the film builds up the action quite nicely and fans of this era's film will certainly enjoy it.
