Gentle Early Kitty Film
27 June 2012 | by DLewisSee all my reviews

Beautifully framed, a little girl wearing a hat with a large brim and a wide sash around her waist feeds her kitty from a high chair out in the garden for 50 seconds. While it is a big kitty, it is very active; at one point jumps down from the high chair, then jumps back up for more, trying to pull the girl's hand back as she takes the treat out a bit too far.

A totally innocent "everyday scene" from the Lumières, and an especially charming one; the spirit of Auguste Renoir is not far from its visual language and the kitty is a good actor. The full film runs 50 seconds, but there is a version circulating on the web that runs only 35 seconds as it is projected a little too quickly.
