Nice Little Film
11 July 2019 | by Rainey-DawnSee all my reviews

Also known as Baron Munchausen's Dream.

It is in no way a masterpiece but it is a nice short film to watch - about 10 minutes long. I do give it extra credit for being an early film as they were still learning the techniques of film-making at the time.

You can find this film online to watch - will not cost you anything but a little time to find it and about 10 minutes to watch.

7/10
