A Must Watch for Film Lovers
11 June 2019 | by 24framesofRabbSee all my reviews

This movie was a great learning experience. The most I ever learned about the Lumiere brothers' filmmaking was their two shorts of "Workers Leaving the Factory" and "Train Entering the Station." This documentary provides 100+ surviving short films by the brothers and their camera operators. The narration is a perfect inclusion for giving context to each short. But one could also watch this movie on mute and gain a more authentic viewing, while still having the documentary structured in a meaningful way.

I cannot recommend the movie enough. If you are thinking about watching Lumiere!, watch it now!!
