That seems a slightly revisionist claim. I don't know the first thing about early French cinematic history, but I do know that Georges Méliès was making films about journeys to the Moon and so on over a century ago.

Don't worry, it's also not true. It's a spoof.

Aha! I was about to say it smelled modern somehow. I think I might have seen the bald director guy in something, and stuff like the backpack phone seems a bit satirical.
