Coming Down in Buckets
17 September 2012 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Some men in bathing clothes slosh bucket after bucket of water on each other -- presumably to wash the salt water from their skins before it dries and makes them itch. They seem really caught up in the fun of dousing each other and there are plenty of buckets. The gouts of water and the men rushing for more water form a comic dance that are amusing for the short length of this Lumiere piece.

The IMDb says this is "Widely recognized as the very first narrative motion picture". I can't tell what tale they are telling and if it has a beginning, middle and end, it's just a matter of how many buckets are left. Who are these experts?
