In 1958, this film literally circled the globe, was showeredin prizes and became one of the most significant films of the 20th century. Among its other awards, it won the Grand Prix at the World Exposition EXPO 58 in Brussels.

It is the first of several films shot by Karel Zeman inspiredby Jules Verne. Here, the director tried to create a new artistic style to bring to life images from the black and white engravings made by the first illustrators of the Jules Verne books, Édouard Riou and Leon Bennett.Later on Zeman further developed this new style, using it to create his visionary worlds. Together, Verne's timeless story of an exploited inventor whose work falls into the hands of criminals threatening the entire world, along with the paper look of the scenery, and dramatic stylization throughout the film all contribute to the unique visual effect and atmosphere of this work of cinematic art.

If you're here. you obviously know that this is one great film...I can only add encouraging words for wary buyers who may be put off by language confusion...This Blu-Ray plays perfectly in the US...the disc offers the native language or dubbed English... video and sound are remarkable...It took 20 days to arrive....but that's inconsequential when one realizes that this restoration brings us back 62 years to a flawless film...I get the impression that it didn't even look this good when it was brand new! Thanks to everyone so dedicated to this remarkable work of art to bring it back to the world in pristine shape!
