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.

Lots of people—me included—think of Jules Verne as one of the fathers of science fictions, but this documentary says he was not about fiction at all when he could avoid it, but considered himself a scientist. It also asserts that some of his ideas are thought to be stolen. It traces his life all the way from an abusive childhood.

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.

This is a fantastic film that covers all the great works of Jules Verne, the Father of Science Fiction. From Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea to Around the World in 80 Days, this film brings you behind the man who wrote so many incredible books. Found it very entertaining and revealing.

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!

I read all the Jules Verne books growing up as a teenager and was somewhat disappointed by many of the films that were subsequently made. Especially in the 70's. But now it seems that Jules Verne in back in vogue with Journey to the Center of the Earth coming to theaters I'm sure other Verne stories will as well much like the Marvel comic stories. This film features a lot of computer graphics and effects and is written by a best selling author who really knows his subject. Even though it is a documentary/biography I found it as interesting and entertaining as a really good movie.
