    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.

    In 1916, after a 2-year long career, Chaplin is already the most paid actor in the world. He signs for 12 new comedies with Mutual Film Corp. He has his own studio, and total control of the production of his films : unprecedented.

    These 12 comedies shot between 1916 and 1917 are a fireworks of humor, invention and fun, maybe what Chaplin has done best in all his career. 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"

    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.
