Georges Méliès presents his version of Molière's classic play "L'avare" (The Miser). The brief fragments presents a greedy old man who keep turning down several people who come to him in need for money, and every time one of those poor individuals leave his house, he goes back to hide all of his treasured fortune. But he's about to face a simple twist of fate.Written by
I likes what I saw. The whole thing with the miser was well acted. He is obviously mentally ill in that all the money he has isn't giving him any pleasure. So when a starving man and a poor woman with children come to see him, he turns them away. The problem is that we see another part of the film where villagers prevent him from falling in a well. He goes off with his money in tow. I assume that in the original screenplay, there is a time of reckoning, just based on the morality of the time.
