Synopsis / Plot
A manuscript is mysteriously delivered to a playhouse where it is eventually turned into a major hit with critics calling it a masterpiece. The only problem is that no one knows who wrote it. The actress of the play receives a call from the author and the two quickly becomes friends but the man won't give any details about himself because he doesn't want her to know that he's actually a dwarf. This leads up to the woman getting his address and stopping by to pay a visit. This is one of the most bizarre shorts I've seen and I must admit that I'm still not certain what director Feuillade was going for. I won't ruin the ending but I can't help but think it was a little over-the-top. I thought the story was rather unique and Feuillade tells it in such a way that you can't help but get caught up in it.
