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.

I was very pleased to discover that this DVD, which is not available in the UK can be purchased directly from the Karel Zeman museum. I bought this and three other films and they arrived the following week, well packaged and in perfect condition. I would highly recommend the museum's shop for all fans of Karel Zeman! If you are new to his work then I would recommend you start with Baron Munchausen or Invention for Destruction. If you enjoy them then, like me, you will not be satisfied until you have seen all of his work.
