Not as gimmicky as most of his films
15 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Segundo de Chomón used lots and lots of camera tricks in his films--many of which he learned by watching the films of the great French film director, Georges Méliès. However, here in "The Express Sculptor" these techniques are used sparingly and the film is much less tricky than usual.

The film consists of an unnamed sculptor making faces out of clay. Along with his assistant (Julienne Mathieu, the director's wife), the pair make one face after another out of clay very, very rapidly and very well. The faces are more like clever caricatures and it actually is surprisingly enjoyable watching the art being created. The only way the director tricked the viewer is sometimes you could barely notice that he occasionally stopped the film to make it easier to make the art appear to be done quicker. Effective and fun.
