The first moving shot, created by a stationary camera on a gondola in Panorama du Grand Canal vu d'un Bateau, was filmed by Alexandre Promio for Louis Lumiere. Filming Locations: Venice, Veneto, Italy. Release Date: 1896 (France).
The title translates to include "Baths" but that's not exactly what's seen in this Lumiere film. This film was shot inside a large pool area where we see the various activities going on. This includes people in the water swimming. People outside the pool talking. The main draw to the film are watching people dive into the water. For the most part this is a very entertaining actuality movie that manages to be quite fun and hold your attention throughout its short running time. As with most movies like this, this here isn't ground-breaking in any way, shape or form but as long as you enjoy these types of movies then you should enjoy it.
