A Sad Film from a Great Artist

French Cops Learning English (1908)

* (out of 4)

aka French interpreter policeman

If you come across anything I've written in regards to Georges Melies, if you check out the films from 1908, you'll see that I'm pretty hard on them because htey clearly show that time had simply passed up the great man. Throughout the films on Flicker Alley's boxset, there's no question that starting in 1908 the films got pretty bad and this here is clearly the worst so far. The seven-minute film takes place inside a classroom where some cops are learning English. Now, the confusing part is what Melies was trying to do with this thing. I"m going to guess it was meant to be a comedy but there wasn't a single laugh here and I really can't identify anything that was even trying to be funny. This entire film is just a complete boring mess from start to finish and it's somewhat sad to watch and especially when you consider what Melies would be doing in the later part of his life, the hard times he hit and so on.
