A dive into Paris life
13 September 2015 | by guillaumedauzouSee all my reviews

It is the 688th piece of film from the Lumiere brothers. It was shot in October 1896. This minute of film is very interesting. It's just a basic point of view, but you can see it as a tourist visiting Paris in the 1900's. The Lumière brothers were not from Paris, we can imagine them as tourists trying to create moving postcards. Look at the pace of the walkers, the way they're dressed, the general lack of speed. The statue represents Henri the 4th and was erected in 1818, less than eighty years before the shooting. It is interesting to note that nobody seems to notice the camera.

It gives you the taste of Paris in the past centuries !
