SYNOPSIS

'This loose adaptation of the 1877 novel 'Off on a Comet' is also a distinctive combination of live-action and animated sequences, inspired by the original illustrations found in Verne’s books. Similarly to his well-received previous films, Zeman once again presents Verne’s world through ironic, but heartfelt tones in this 1970 motion picture. The novel relates an adventure tale in which a group of brave characters travel the solar system, revealing to readers some of the contemporary knowledge of our cosmic backyard. But Zeman and screenwriter Jan Procházka took the story of the bold Captain Hector Servadac and interpreted this tale as one bringing forth Old World nostalgia, while picking up on its contemporary elements of widespread social intolerance.' - Filmový přehled
