Fishing for Goldfish (1895)

La Peche aux poissons (1895)

This early film from the Lumiere Brothers has a little girl standing over a fish bowl where she's fishing for goldfish (which is also the American title). If you're a fan of these early actuality movies then you'll probably enjoy this one. The child is certainly cute and charming enough to keep your interest through the one minute running time. It's also fairly fascinating getting to see what her clothing looked like. Those 1895 styles were certainly something! Obviously you're either a fan of these films or not. I personally really enjoy watching them and this was an entertaining one.
