A woman and several young children sprint a narrow jetty to dive into the waves. The land is behind us; the lines of the jetty and horizon in harmonic counterpoint. Like most of the early Lumière shorts, it’s an actuality but this one has the lyrical texture of a daydream.

Wonderful directing and lovely composition. Definitely an irresistible 'daydream.'
