The Trigger

Not the first movie ever, but considered the very first movie ever being shown to the public, by the Lumière brothers who were the pioneers in "making" movies. Their first movie is usually entitled "Workers Leaving the Factory" (filmed at the entrance of the brothers' factory itself).

A confusing cross between interesting and dull

Although the only thing that happens is a train comes into a station, it is only 50 seconds, although it is dull, it is also interesting as it is one of the first movies ever and is worth a look especially if you're interested in the first movies ever
View all The Arrival of a Train at Station reviews
A group of people are standing in a straight line along the platform of a railway station, waiting for a train, which is seen coming at some distance. When the train stops at the platform, the line dissolves. The doors of the railway-cars open, and people on the platform help passengers to get off.
Release date: 13 December 1901

"Directed by the Lumière Brothers PIVOTAL to the rapid evolution of filmmaking, the Lumière Bros. were pioneers that set the precedent for the very first cinematic 'suspense thriller'; without this Alfred Hitchcock would be a 'nobody'! "

"28.10. Ihan hauskaa nähdä maailman ensimmäinen teatterielokuva teatterissa, vaikka tämän näyttämisessä Kenraalin rinnalla nyt oli hieman pakotuksen makua. Yrittäkää muuten pisteyttää tämä ja perustella arvosananne hyvin."

"First film of real aesthetic interest on this list. The camera is stationary, but note how the Lumiere Brothers have already developed a sense for framing motion. One of the earliest projected films to be publicly exhibited. Apparently some members of the audience were a bit worried the train might run right through the screen.* *that may be an urban myth/Lumiere PR"

"Jokseenkin Workers Leaving the Factorya mielenkiintoisempi, mikä johtuu kameraa lähestyvän junan visuaalisesta koreudesta. Samaa testikamaahan tämäkin silti on."
