Storyline

In the prehistoric era, man is freezing when the gods take pity and give him warmth (fire). But there's a condition: don't be careless. He passes it down through the ages and gains more control over it but it is still dangerous. We see a modern domestic scene: the cigarette falls, the iron is left on, the fork goes into the toaster, and a plug gets overloaded. Soon an entire city is in flames. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Beware of the fire!
17 December 2002 | by LeRoyMarkoSee all my reviews

The history of the fire and the danger of it. That's the story in this short film from the National Film Board of Canada. It's actually presented by the Dominion Fire Commissioner and it was probably use as a way to educate people about the danger of fire, in all its forms.

We're shown Adam and Eve (and of course the snake). They're cold. But God gives them fire. He's got an advice for them though: "The fire must be your slave. You must never set it free. It will devour all of mankind if given half the chance".

Out of 100, I give it 74. That's good for **½ out of ****.

Seen at home, in Toronto, on December 15th, 2002.
