The Holy Sepulcher
14 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is one of a series of actualities filmed in Jerusalem by Alexandre Promio and Gabriel Veyre. They undoubtedly were extremely popular. There was a sizable audience for exotic locations and for the audience of the time -- country fair exhibitors would buy the films and exhibit them for years -- views of the Holy Land were like a pilgrimage.

The composition of the film is competent. The grand arch of the entrance helps to center and frame the picture. Yet the random wanderings in and out of people quickly begins to pall and by the end of the film, a viewer who does not have strong religious feelings has had more than enough.
