Country: France
What it is: Magic fluff

A woman waters her windowsill and flowers magically appear, attracting butterflies. Eventually a large flower opens up to reveal the face of the woman, and she bows and makes her exit. Oops, I just gave away the ending…

I don’t really expect much in the way of gravitas when watching shorts from the silent era, especially when they run about one minute long. But even by those standards, this is a piece of airy fluff. It practically dissipates while you’re watching it. I’d say it’s about as close as I’ve come to watching no movie at all for this series, but if you’re keen on flowers, fairies and butterflies, you could do worse.
