1910: 1 movie

posted 2012 August 9

Le songe d'un garçon de café
Directed by Émile Cohl

   A fluid animation-piece that points to alcohol as a source of nightmares as well as of fantastic creativity. The lines between madness and genius, and drunkard and poet, has never been so muddled. Of course, the precision of the drawings seems to necessitate a sober hand.
   The title translates as "The dream of a café-waiter".
