For me this is the best adventure movie ever. Superior choice of actors,especially Lembit Ulfsak (Estonian actor) as Paganel. Lembit Ulfsak's play is one of the key elements that makes this movie so special. But there is more to it. A movie about the true human values as much as an adventure movie. I've seen it ~7x times, and still a weekend with one of the series is almost a tradition in wintertime. The harmonious meditative pace of the movie may be hard to bear for the big fans of modern fast and dynamic action movies. This movie is not a quick shot but rather a long glass of fine wine. What I didn't like in the movie when I watched it young, was the interruptions of the parallel story of Jules Vernes contemplations and conversations, but now I appreciate them as much as the adventure story itself.
