Jules Verne and slavery...
10 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

"Un capitaine de quinze ans" is an obscure Jules Verne's book which I read when I was about 14 and which I liked very much.An adventure yarn,it displayed Verne's disgust for slavery .

It is an eventful story ;its best moment is when the hero and his mates discover they are not in America but in Africa .

If Luis Bunuel was probably the best Spanish director ever,Jesus Franco won the "Spanish Worst" award hands down.He completely butchered Verne's novel,but one must precise it's not entirely his fault.Such a film demands a big budget ,as successful adaptations as "20,000 leagues under the sea" and "journey to the center of the earth" show.

Here the jungle looks like a public park,the hero is chewing gum ,and when they go whaling,well...The characters are uninteresting,the hero is completely bland and the villains ...well,read the book instead.
