Back to His Old Tricks
20 November 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Melies returns to his magic roots for this one. After some poor slapstick ventures, he is an Indian magician who jumps out of a painting. He proceeds to do a whole series of tricks, all involving eggs. First the normal sized ones and then ones that are transformed into large ones. He creates a scale and weighs the egg and soon the egg hatches different things, from chickens to humans. It's all done with the same sort of precision he did for most of his early films. The problem. It really is nothing new and the audiences must seen this problem.
