Just a Fragment

Since we don't get to see the entire film, it is hard to judge. The set is interesting. Melies like the whole idea of exploring, be it the depths of the ocean or outer space. Here, our explorer is about to open a sarcophagus but is disappointed. So are we. I'm sure there is some point but we will never know.
