The Kingdom of the Fairies

In this spectacular, meticulously hand-coloured movie which incorporates a plethora of never-seen-before special effects, interchanging panoramas and soft dissolves, the indefatigable director Georges Méliès presents a free adaptation of the popular theatre play "La Biche au Bois" by the brothers Cogniard. Following the announcement of the espousal of the beautiful young Princess Azurine and the noble Prince Bel-Azor, a baleful old witch casts a fiery and sulphurous curse on the innocent woman, and then aided by her evil minions, captures her and takes off on a blazing gilded chariot. But the valiant Prince along with the Fairy Godmother, Aurora, pursue the sorceress, from the unfathomable chasms of the eternal sea to great Neptune's realm, and finally, the abominable witch's impregnable castle. Who shall stand in the way of love?

Miraculously salvaged in 1982, this grand hand-tinted cinematographic epic in twelve superb static tableaux marks the great Georges Méliès's second cinematic triumph after his classic fairy-tale adaptation of Cendrillon (1899). Although the introductory scene which establishes the young Joan as a humble peasant maiden is forever lost, the film still manages to portray Joan of Arc as a saint and France's national hero, through the use of theatrical long shots, experimental medium shots where the action is, and gradual dissolves. Starting off with the seraphic visitation by Archangel Michael, St. Margaret and St. Catherine, a 13-year-old Joan accepts a divine call to arms against her parents' will, as she boldly crosses the iron gates of Vaucouleur, convincing Captain Robert de Baudricourt to grand his permission to lead an army. Next, as Charles VII is crowned King of France in the magnificent Reims Cathedral after the decisive victory at Orléans, the brutal Siege of Compiègne and Joan's final campaign follows, where the charismatic commander falls into the hands of the Burgundians, on 23 May 1430. But in her dank cell, the angelic visions return, as the mighty celestial guardian, St. Michael, reminds Joan of her destiny, inspiriting the now 19-year-old woman to refuse to sign a retraction. Condemned as a heretic by the Bishop of Beauvais, Pierre Cauchon, Joan is burned at the stake at the bustling Rouen marketplace on 30 May 1431, resulting in a glorious apotheosis scene where the noble martyr ascends to heaven, welcomed by God and all the saints.

This George Méliès' extraordinary fairy-tale film adaptation of author Charles Perrault's "Cendrillon", is considered to be the first film to use a dissolve transition in-between scenes. With the use of twenty masterly coloured engravings by Gustave Doré to illustrate the storyline's interchanging scenes, the director portrays Cinderella's well-known story, as the Fairy Godmother works her magic, transforming a poor and ragged girl to a fine aristocratic Lady at the King's Ball. In less than seven minutes, everything is here: from the magnificent magical carriage and the jealous sisters, to the noble Prince Charming and the dainty slipper. Of course, here too, time is of the essence.
