A Trip to the Moon (le voyage dans la lune)




A Trip to the Moon

A quaint little film that is now regarded as one of the first classic films, and quite possibly the very first science-fiction film. This is moreso a lesson in film antiquity and history, but it is still entertaining nonetheless. Filmed as more of a theatrical presence than a film as we know it, it is an informative exercise in how much films have evolved and progressed from their earliest origins. Still, there are quite a good number of great visual tricks at play, which form the foundations of later special-effects. Even if you aren’t merely seeing it for historical significance, entertain yourself with a quick viewing. A very charming little film-that-could.

Arbitrary Rating: 8/10
