This is NOT 'A Trip to the Moon', which is a cinematic icon (aka. The moon with the ship in the side of his face). This is 'The Astronomer's Dream', its title 'La Lune a une metre' translates to 'One metre to the moon'. Same director, four years before 'Le Voyage dans la Lune' ('A Trip to the Moon'). Just so you know.
Trippy by any century's standards.
I don't know how to explain, but every time I watch something from Melies I feel my heart warm.
He was a creative man with a new technology and he did make dreams come to life in such a magical way... It's just beautiful...
