Gontran et la voisine inconnue

France, 1913
Comedy, Silent, Short


Gontran is too absorbed in his (terrible) piano playing to pay any attention to his wife. She tells him she’s going back to her mother, but instead moves in next door to play a trick on him.

  • pepoire's rating of the film Gontran et la voisine inconnue

    Five stars just because this short is just so charming (& attractively filmed too)! Gontran and his wife are both delightful; he in his complete inability to understand that his piano playing does not enrapture anyone but himself, and she in her gleeful (but affectionate) game with his obsession. I'm predisposed to like films where women are the agents rather than the targets of humour, and this is a lovely example.
