"The 1002nd Ruse", 1915, is a domestic comedy silent film featuring Evgeny Bauer's wife. It's a silly short film that makes fun of infidelity and involves a married couple who enjoy trying to outwit the other and make a fool out of the other.
This brief comedy (about 15 minutes) is a surprise for all who have discovered this truly cinematic genius recently because of his tone, close to Lubitsch, Demille or La Cava silent comedies and far away from those enigmatic, tragic, hopeless "After death", "Daydreams" or "Silent witnesses". Especially wonderful the outdoor scenes, like it happens always in his movies, full of life and grace.
