Description:Set against a black backdrop decorated with plant life, a girl makes various characters appear and disappear from huge eggs. This film forms part of what is known as 'cinema of attractions', successor to the popular shows of the late nineteenth century. Rather than a narrative, the film seeks to astound and amaze the audience through a series of visual tricks with particular emphasis on the use of overlays and transformations.
