Bout-de-Zan and the Shirker

Title: “Bout-de-Zan et l’embusqué”
Year: 1915
Length: 8 minutes
Director: Louis Feuillade
Starring: René Poyen
I saw it: on video (Les Vampires bonus feature), yesterday
Synopsis: a kid finds out his uncle is faking his hunting skill

My reaction
Concept:0/4 (Terrible)
Story:0/4 (Terrible)
Characters:1/4 (Bad)
Dialog:1/4 (Bad)
Pacing:0/4 (Terrible)
Cinematography:1/4 (Bad)
Special effects/design:2/4 (Indifferent)
Acting:2/4 (Indifferent)
Music:2/4 (Indifferent)
Subjective Rating: 2/10 (Terrible, 0/4 (Terrible)). Is this supposed to be funny? Charming? Moralizing? Or was simply putting a child on screen considered entertainment back in 1915?
Objective Rating (Average):0.9/4 (Very bad)
