A trip through the birth of cinema
It is a wonderful documentary, that everyone who love cinema must watch. Lumière brothers and crew were real artists and their importance goes much beyong the already essenfial role in the machne development. While the film design is simple, just showing original short films with narration, two elements make it an amazing achievement: 1) narrated text is brilliant, it is a well humored and deeply informed lecture on the history of cinema, the role played by Lumière in it, and how the world and society they showed in movement was; 2) many awesome short films produced or made by Lumière were, for artistic or historical reasons (often for both), extraordinary, anticipating what other important moviemakers would developped and being credited for later. Well done and moving documentary.
