Sisif, a railwayman, and his son Elie fall in love with the beautiful Norma (who Sisif rescued from a train crash when a baby and raised as his daughter), with tragic results. Originally running nine hours, this epic tragedy is notable for the way it foreshadows Gance's later 'Napoleon' in its use of innovative cinematic devices, particularly rapid cutting.

NOTE: Only a fragment of this film survives. Here is what remains. By the time this short subject came out, Segundo de Chomón had bested Georges Melies at his own game. His camera magic was as fully developed as Melies. His sense of humor was sharper and his scenes had invaded the real world. Many of the shots of this split-reel short about a bizarre group of tramp musicians who disappear into and out of drums, beach umbrellas and whatnots are shot in the street and the others are on stages...

Sadly, only a fragment of this film seems to have survived. Fortunately, we are here to view it. I don't know about you but watching this made me want to go play outside. Maybe it was the jumping water sprites?

Ceci est un film que nous avons faite dans l'experimentation d'une ligue d'improvisation cinematographique, nous avons fait deux versions, l'une qu'on a fait dans les temps, donc 24Heures, et la version 2 qu'on a fait en 48 heures. C'est un film d'ambiance, une bande de jeunes s'enfoncent dans les bois et tranquillement chacun disparait.
