Odd Film From Chomon
30 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This film is a rather odd one from Segundo de Chomon, the man who copied Melies. It somewhat has a story but that is more just an excuse to show off a lot of special effects that are actually a bit typical if you've seen lots of Melies's work. The same odd little stunts happen where people kick other people from behind and appear out of nowhere. If it weren't for the Pathe stencil-coloring process used in lots of Chomon films, I would probably think this was a film from Melies.

The story is about a shepherd (who so happens to be a complete idiot) having a fight with his wife and stomping out of their home. I think he falls asleep because a moment later he's being tortured by all these apparitions which basically happens for the remainder of the film. Yep, that's it. It's a weird, incoherent watch which is actually funny at times (due to the shepherd's facial expressions) and there is a bit of coloring. Since I'm a sucker for Chomon's work I'll say I liked it but other people will probably just blame Chomon for ripping off Melies's work.
