The First Film Adaptation Of The Jules Verne Sci-fi Classic
Its looks awesome as many other Melies' films do but its hardly very true to the book.
Obviously you can't go that deep into the book in such a short time but as some other films like Frankenstein(1910) managed to do it so I don't see why Melies couldn't other than the fact that this is from a time when title cards were not used yet.
Basically what we get is a montage of Melies style painted backgrounds and creatures which keeps you interested for a few minutes.
Recommended for fans of OLD sci-fi and fans Melies or Verne, or if you just have a few minutes to spare
