Tables Turned on the Gardener

L'Arroseur Arrosé

Directed by Louis Lumière


A gardener is watering flowers; a young boy steps on the hose, thus blocking the flow of water; the gardener looks down the hose to see what’s happening; the boy lifts his foot off. The first fully staged fictional film presented in public, and the first comedy film.
