I watched it, of course, and am thoroughly confused, though I do want to say we love that camel, especially the hearse on a roller coaster part.

House of Mirth and Movies has a review.

There is information on this short science fiction film at FilmsDeFrance.com. There are no English intertitles, but it's easy enough to understand from the plot summary at Wikipedia:
The film is about a mad doctor who uses a magic ray on citizens which causes them to freeze in strange and often embarrassing positions. People who are unaffected by the ray begin to loot Paris.
You can see a 17-minute BBC documentary on Clair at ubu.com. It includes biographical material and interviews.
