Autour d'une cabine (1894)

Émile Reynaud directed this extremely early animated film that's certainly entertaining on a number of levels. The story is pretty simple as we see a couple people swimming before getting on a boat. If you're looking for a well-detailed plot then you're not going to find it here. This film is obviously interesting because of how early it was made and by the fact that it was one of the first animated films.

As far as the images goes, I thought for the most part they were extremely good with a few sequences that really stand out. The best for me was the scene where the two ladies are in the water and they slide down in it to get more water on them. I thought this looked terrific as did the scene where the boat comes out with them on it. Again, there's certainly nothing here that matches Walt Disney but you have to respect that this here is where everything started.
