DVD On The Comet
The movie was inspired by Verne´s novel "Off On a Comet", and it marked the culmination of Zeman´s creative period in which he combined live action and animation.
After a collision between a comet and planet Earth, part of a French colony ends up living on the surface of the comet wandering thru outer space. The colonists face the dangers of an approaching apocalypse. The director makes the point that the greatest threat to the world is its people, always fighting for power among themselves.
The film won awards in Venice, Tehran and Paris.
