A Pathé comic film has the title, My Neighbours are Giving a Dance. A man suffering from a bad headache is annoyed by the sounds which came from the flat above, where the neighbours are having a musical evening. When the angry man taps on the ceiling and requests them to be less boisterous, they only redouble their antics, and are at last landed in his room amid a cloud of plaster, etc. (Kinematograph and Lantern Weekly, Jul. 23, 1908)


Avoir la migraine est déjà une calamité, mais avoir des voisins qui, sans souci de votre mal, chantent à l’étage au-dessus, voilà qui passe la mesure. C’est ce que pense l’infortuné Max. De sa canne, il avertit ses voisins d’avoir à ménager ses oreilles. Mais, comme cela leur paraît insuffisant, ils dansent une bourrée formidable qui ébranle non seulement les nerfs de Max, mais le plancher du salon qui s’entrouvre et laisse tomber dans la chambre du malheureux ses implacables bourreaux. (Henri Bousquet, Catalogue Pathé des années 1896 à 1914, Bures-sur-Yvette, Editions Henri Bousquet, 1994-2004)




Anmerkung: Meus visinhos dansam – Comica falante. O sr. Max Landry chega á casa atacado de dor de cabeça: antypririna e outros remedios são tomados, mas um «soirée» concerto, põe o sr. Max em estado do loucura. (Correio da Manhã, 24.8.1908) — Note: My neighbors are dancing - Excessively comical. Mr. Max Landry comes home, affected by a headache: antipyrine and other remedies are taken, but a «soirée» concert, puts Mr. Max in a state of madness." (Correio da Manhã, Aug. 24, 1908)

Weitere Filmbeschreibungen/Kritiken:


Poor Mr. Jones is suffering with a splitting headache, and his neighbours, instead of treading noiselessly in their flat just above him, are having a musical evening. John knocks with his cane against the ceiling in order to ask them to stop their disturbance; but they, instead of complying with the young man's wish, begin to dance a barn dance, which makes the floor creak and give way, landing in John's room all his noisy neighbours. (Kinematograph and Lantern Weekly, Jul. 23, 1908)


A young man is seen entering his room and from the many expressions on his worn face one could not doubt that he is just returning from one grand night with the boys, and is in no condition to be annoyed or disturbed. After administering to his wants in the form of headache tablets, he goes to lie down for a while and sleep the effects of the previous night off. In a room directly over him are a number of people conducting a rehearsal. They sing and dance and make as much noise as possible for civilized people. The poor fellow is nearly frantic and tosses around in bed until at last he seizes a chair and knocks on the ceiling. As soon as the neighbors realize that they are annoying some one, they take on new vim and move all the furniture out of the room and start to dance and jig over the man's head until he is wild with indignation. Finally they get so strenuous in their efforts to annoy him that they break through the floor and come down into the fellow's room with a crash, and he has the satisfaction of giving them all a good drubbing as they lay in a heap on the floor. (Views and Films Index; Moving Picture World, July 11, 1908)


A comic which illustrates the possibilities of discomfort in a flat where all sorts of noises are going on overhead. Perhaps the victim doesn't offer much pity when the floor breaks and the crowd above come tumbling down into his room. His belabouring are extreme real and no doubt truly represent his feelings. (Moving Picture World, Dec. 19, 1908)
