SYNOPSIS

'This astonishing Grand Prix winner at Expo ’58 in Brussels was steampunk long before the term was coined. Drawing on the 1896 novel 'Facing the Flag', among other works by Jules Verne, it ingeniously adopts the line engraving aesthetic of Édouard Riou and Léon Benett’s illustrations in original editions of Verne’s novels while anticipating the Cold War paranoia and antic derring-do of the imminent James Bond films'.' – Melbourne Cinémathèque.
