Ivan Alvarez de Araya,
Not the most exciting, but decent look on cinema history
Finding out about the movie from the group who did the music, AIR, I was less interested in the documentary portion and more interested in seeing the film with the new original score. The documentary proved to be the far more interesting portion and is, of course, the main attraction. It starts out with a history of Georges Melies and early cinema in general, and then moves onto some specifics about Le Voyage dans la lune. Then there is a portion on the restoration of the film, followed by the film itself. The history of Melies, which occupies most of the movie, is probably the weakest part. The content is interesting and it uses tons of great old footage, but the way it is edited and put together is just not that interesting. The restoration portion is shorter, but also much more fascinating and exciting. The restored movie with music by AIR is fun to watch and you can really understand why it holds a place in movie history. The soundtrack starts off awkward at first but fits it perfectly by the time they're chased by aliens. It's not always the most exciting documentary, but if you're interested in movies, and if you're looking at this right now you probably are, it's a worthwhile watch to see the story of a piece of movie history.
