The Lumiere Brothers’ First Films

Eighty-five of the silent 50-second “actualities” made by the Lumieres between 1895 and 1897 have been mastered from original 35mm material and are presented here in this first ever authorized video presentation. An amazing journey through the birth of the motion picture. Narrated by film director and President of the Institut Lumiere Bertrand Tavernier (Coup de Torchon), with a piano score by Stuart Oderman.

Don´t do booze!

A good old classic. As in the early days, a moral story on what happens to a man if he starts to drink and gamble. Yes! Drinking and gambling are bad for you! 🙂 Anyways, I enjoyed watching it, since it so well reflects one of the popular themes of cinema of the early days: the moral story. This movie also reminds you of, how it was like in those days, especially what it was like to be poor. Movies of this era are always worth seeing
