    The entire collection of Méliès' films - from the well known to the rediscovered
    Méliès' films enchant people of all ages. As well as being a pioneer, he remains the uncontested master of fantasy and dream worlds, and was the first and most incredible wizard of cinema.

    For the first time, viewers can now appreciate the importance of his work - that of a magician and artist whose imagination knew no bounds. The exceptionally talented Méliès produced and directed all his films. He also wrote the "sweet talk", designed the sets, costumes and accessories, and was also the main actor.

    Following 25 years of research, and a worldwide search for copies, this collection constitues a genuine reference. The latest technology has been used on these newly restored films, many of which are available for the first time.
    The spirit of the era is rendered by 13 musicians.

Success after success, the character of The tramp becomes more complex, and films like The Vagabond, One A.m. Or the Immigrant are jewels of skill and sophistication.
     
    These ultimate restorations  are the result of 3 long years of research in the world, and technological achievements. One century after their first release, these films do not have a wrinkle, and the pleasure of watching them is intact. Chaplin said "Shooting the Mutual comedies was the best moment of my life"

    The series was called "Essanay-Chaplin brand", and Essanay was the first to sell merchandising rights for a movie character. In one year, Chaplin was to star in and direct 16 hilarious films, including his iconic The Tramp - each release breaking a new record in sales. Like the two previous series (Keystone and Mutual), these will be newly restored. They will sparkle! The restoration of the Essanay comedies will conclude the restoration of the Chaplin films, now 100 years old, and will amaze future generations in their second century.

    First adaptation from the well-known Victor Hugo's novel, with an incredible performance by Lon Chaney.

    Paris, in the 16th century: Quasimodo, the hunchback raised in Notre-Dame Cathedral, falls hopelessly in love with the lovely and unattainable Gypsy girl, Esmeralda. He rescues the beauty, in this moving classic which has been staged so many times.

    Based loosely on Victor Hugo's novel, this was a lavish production endowed with a budget that was considerable at the time. Since 1925, it has been viewable only in shortened versions, which gave it a poor reputation. This version, newly restored in high definition from a full-length, tinted print miraculously found in 2006, finally does justice to the splendor of the masterpiece. The film again becomes the superproduction it was intended to be.

    Young "Carrot-Top," given this nickname by a mother who detests him, does not suffer every indignity without rebelling.

    To him, a family is just a bunch of people who are stuck with each other. Why should he care if his big brother Félix is stealing their parents' money to maintain a singer in a honky-tonk? The tenderness of little Mathilde and the affection the boy receives from the maid Annette can never make up for his mother's loathing and his father's indifference. Nevertheless, when Papa learns that Poil-de-Carotte is contemplating suicide, he intervenes. Finally taking his son by the hand, he forges a bond which consoles a boy who thought he was the shame of the family.
