SYNOPSIS

'Anticipating Spielberg’s Jurassic Park by nearly 40 years, Zeman’s first feature to synthesise live action with animation is equal parts delightful boys’ own adventure and gently didactic educational film à la Walking with Dinosaurs. Four boys sail upstream along the river of time, encountering all manner of extinct wildlife in tableaux inspired by the glorious paleoart of Zdeněk Burian.' – Melbourne Cinémathèque.
