Storyline

Two nosy neighbors who drill a hole through their wall to spy on the canoodling couple next door get more than they bargained for when the man discovers their plan and casts a magic spell. So-called "Father of the Animated Cartoon" Emile Cohl's blend of live action, stop-motion and hand-drawn animation offers the kind of delightful fantasy common in early French cinema mixed with some gentle comedy. - Marilyn Ferdinand

Nice Mix of Animation and Split Screen
1 June 2015 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

The Next Door Neighbors (1909)

*** (out of 4)

Fun use of split-screen effects as the left side of the frame features a young couple while the right side features an old couple. The split screen makes it appear that you're looking at two different apartment buildings and when the old couple decides to spy on the young, that portion of the screen switches over to animation with various things used to get even on those doing the spying. Overall this here is a pretty neat little gem especially when you consider it was made very early in the animation days and adding in the split screen was a nice bonus. Is this a great movie? I certainly don't think so but there are certainly a lot of memorable moments including one where the animated figure puts a water hose up to the next apartment and the old couple gets water poured on them.
