Faust And Marguerite (1904)

** (out of 4)

aka Damnation du Docteur Faust

Melies second attempt at telling the story of Faust. This time out Faust and his love Marguerite are sentenced to Hell where they are showed the torture that awaits. I loved Melies previous film on Faust but this one here just left me bored out of my mind. The film runs just over three minutes and features narration but none of it worked for me. I found the visuals to be rather bland and the entire story just didn't seem to click. The tombs of Hell weren't nearly as impressive as the director's The Damnation of Faust.
