amazing, interesting and amusing
14 March 2018 | by hermesbrandtSee all my reviews

I just saw Lumière in the Eye film museum (Amsterdam, Netherlands). Only 4 spectators on this Wednesday morning... This movie deserves much more. The old Lumière movies have been amazingly well restored. I only knew L'arroseur arrosé (The waterer watered) and the famous film with the train entering a station, which at the first viewing in the 19th century scared the audience so much many fled from their seats, afraid to be overrun. To see the other films, all shot between 1895 and 1905, was amazing (their quality!), interesting (to see the daily life of the end of the 19th century) and often amusing (the comic movies). Since each film olnly lastst for 50 seconds, the film never gets boring - there is so much variety! For me a 10-star movie.
