A typical French "trick" picture, this Gaumont one-reeler eschews plot and character development in favor of special effects. The title describes the on-screen action, as a would-be aviator causes all sorts of chaos when he descends to earth. One critic of the time complained that the "average viewer" wouldn't be able to follow the chronology of the film. The critic did, however, compliment the filmmakers for the cleverness and dexterity of their optical effects.
