This Lumiere documentary is again nothing special or ground-breaking from anything else we've seen but it's entertaining because it shows a moment in time. There's a little girl (somebody named Madeleine Koehler, a friend of the Lumiere family, maybe?) who is in her highchair, with a cat perched on the tray, diving for the food she holds in her hand. The film ends just as the cat dives for the girl's hand. I have to say the composition is excellent and the well-placed camera captures the activity decently. There is plenty of action within the frame as well. For what it is it's nothing special, and I'm not sure if this was staged. Maybe so. While not something overly special or interesting, it's a Lumiere actuality just capturing what happened between 'the little girl and her cat' so you can't criticize it for what it was trying to do. Since I'm a big fan of these Lumiere actualities I of course liked it. Even today's audiences might find this to be a cute little film.
