Editorial Reviews

The fantastic tales of adventure penned over a hundred years ago by Jules Verne still live in the minds and hearts of millions. Futuristic concepts and legendary heroes mix with visions of a utopian world and crazed madmen, and yet, this incredible legacy is still misunderstood and misinterpreted.

Hundreds of writers have tried desperately to analyze the writings of Jules Verne, claiming on the one hand that there is an underlying sexual message, on the other that he is guiding us towards some hidden and lost treasure. But what is the truth? Were these highly successful stories simply great works of fiction? Or do they really hold a message for us today?

In this film, we dissect the most famous of tales and discover the truth. From "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" to "Around the World in Eighty Days," from "The Mysterious Island" to "Journey to the Center of the Earth," this film scrutinizes both the author and the meaning of his work.

This is a voyage into the world of Jules Verne, the father of science fiction.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jules Verne March 4, 2009
Format:DVD
Learn about Jules Verne's life growing up and how he joined a secret society. His novels were about the Freemasons and had secret, occult, and Gnostic ideas in them. He had a secret he could not share with anyone and he destroyed all his diaries, papers and documents before he died. His led a fascinating life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting hidden messages June 25, 2008
Format:DVD
With the remade Journey to the Center of the Earth soon to be in theaters, I thought it was a great time to take a look into the life and inner-workings of Jules Verne. He was so far ahead of his time that he was intimidating to some who lean towards the more simple and clear-cut. The reputed hidden messages ranging from hidden treasure to sex continue to interest and plague Verne enthusiasts. Great movie, interesting and well worth your time!

4.0 out of 5 stars Verne's Voyages.... June 14, 2008
Format:DVD
As a francophile, I was fascinated by this new take on the life of a French literary phenomenon. It is a bit slow in some places, but overall a very interesting film documentary on the lesser-know side of the author of Around the World in 80 Days.

The best that can be said about this occult nonsense is that they couldn't pronounce any names correctly. A complete waste of money.

Jules Verne had some extraordinary voyages alright...and not just through his fiction. His life was riddled with mystery & genuine adventure, and it was wonderful to get a very intimate look into his darker life--the life not often spoken of. His was an interesting life indeed.
