The Impossible Voyage (1904)


Number of Times Seen – 1 (13 Oct 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A group of scientists take a fantastical journey across the world in order to get to the sun.

My Take on it – Another amazingly innovative and unique film by Georges Melies that shows how creative his mind was. The story plays out in a fascinating way and works really well in showing the magic and abilities of the film medium. The characters and costumes are done really well and this is a precursor of some of his most famous and most enjoyable films eventhough part of the narrative is a bit strange when choosing where to take these adventurers.

Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – For a few seconds, a pole can clearly be seen holding the anthropomorphic sun up. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
