L'arrivée d'un train à La Ciotat

ejonline's rating of the film The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat

On the one hand, not much happens beyond the train arriving. On the other hand, so much happens as you are watching the Lumieres create the language of cinema. This means that rather than reviewing a film, it is actually a question of reviewing a key moment in time. So - great moment, five stars! Full disclosure - I love trains and old films, so somehow I'm the target audience more than a century later.
