The fabulous world of Jules Verne is considered the first, important steampunk film. Visually fabulous, full of ideas and understated Czech humour.
Live action is seamlessly combined with animation in which both the design and the texture of the original woodprints and lithographs are replicated from the books. A visually fabulous film (Czech 1958), full of form ideas and detached Czech humour. Its steampunk design is reminiscent of Japanese anime by artists like Otomo (Akira) and Miyazaki (Spirited Away).
