Description:Girls, nymphs, fairies and demons appear and disappear as they dance and interact with each other in front of a backdrop featuring large flowers on a black background. This film forms part of what is known as 'cinema of attractions', successor to the popular shows of the late nineteenth century. Beyond a simple narrative, the film seeks to astound and amaze the audience through a series of visual tricks: transformations, overlays, substitutions and reverse motion, among other effects.
