This movie is obviously set in the late 19th century - the 1890s. The steamship Savannah in the opening of the film crossed the Atlantic in 1819 - a good 70 years before the story takes place. See more »
An interesting movie based on three of Jules Verne's novels. Considering the special effects and computer enhanced animation of today, this movie stands as an historic marker of cinematic resourcefulness and imagination. Karel Zeman has brought to life the lithographic images of the original Jules Verne texts. this is a must see for classic science fiction and history buffs.
I give this movie 9 out of 10. Enjoy!!
