L'Oeuvre de Georges Méliès: Jezebel giveaway vol. 4!


Courtesy of a messenger from the West, I find myself with 2 copies of the unbelievable L'Oeuvre de Georges Méliès, a monograph (in French) devoted to the French filmmaker. For a chance to win, please leave a comment at this post by Sunday, December 13. If you, like me, are a child at best in your command over French, despite many, many, many years of French classes, do not be dissuaded from entering. The marvelous images make up for the shame one might feel at gazing upon strings of letters and accent marks where words ought to be.

This is the first comment I've ever left on a blog. I get nervous and maybe I'm a bit late. Méliès made a gilded early footprint in cinema. Love Méliès, love you Jezebel.

Méliès used his craft to create a fantasy world which the audience could escape to. I recently visited Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris where he is buried, this cemetery is a silent fantasy world in and of itself, the perfect escape for both the living and the dead. I suspect he is happy there.

I only remember how to say Je sui fatigue and nous sommes des jeunes femmes in French. Hope that counts.

Ooh! Je le veux. Not for me, but to give to my best friend, a disgustingly elegant stop-motion movie maker.
