The Luny Musician (Melies)
20 March 2010 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Luny Musician, The (1906)

*** (out of 4)

aka Le Maestro Do-Mi-Sol-Do

In terms of an original storyline, this Melies film doesn't contain that but it's still a lot of fun. A musician is in his room trying to learn a new song but the maid comes in and interrupts him, which causes him to fly off the handle and kick the tray out of her hands. Then the room comes to life and the musicians is about to find himself being tortured. Melies was a master at the trick film and this here shows his talents at the highest level. Even though we've seen this type of film from him before I still had a blast here as the sheet music kept moving to different levels where the musician couldn't read it and even better is when his violin turns to a tuba and then various other instruments. The highlight of the film are the last few moments when he's trying to play the piano but it starts dancing across the room and then violently attacks the musician. This isn't one of Melies best known works but it's a very good one.
