Gulliver's Travels Among the Lilliputians and the Giants (1902)

*** (out of 4)

aka La Voyage de Gulliver a Lilliput et chez les geants

The famous story is partially retold here by director Melies in a pretty impressive film. We see Culliver getting along in a town with the small people but soon dangers lurks them all. This is a very impressive little film from the director as it manages to be quite magical in its short four plus minute running time. The entire film is hand colored, which gives it more of a fantasy feel. The movie runs along at a good speed and the special effects are very well done and hold up quite well. The magical cage that Gulliver picks up and sits on the table is one of the highlights. If you look quick at the start of the film you can see a sea, which appears to be the same set from A Trip to the Moon.
