  • “We battled with the project for five years, got our share of
    punches before knocking it out, but now it’s ready,” said Cretan
    filmmaker, writer, painter and engineer Angelos Spartalis,
    when presenting his film on Monday at the Athens International Film

    No stranger to animation, Spartalis has been touring local
    festivals for the past years, presenting films mixing live action and
    collage animation. On his seventh outing, he’s gone all out,
    presenting his first fully animated feature, the country’s first.

    The artwork takes a little getting used to, as it does every time
    a Spartalis film hits the screens, but that only allows for the story
    to come forward until one’s eyes clear out enough to appreciate the
    crudeness of the design.

    “The story was asking to be made using collage,” Spartalis
    explains: “Verne’s brave soldiers were very proud to not be in
    one piece, to have had their limbs replaced, have arms ending in
    hooks, jaws made of silver and noses carved out of rubber”.

    His film seems to be a collage itself, with topical cultural
    elements and pop anachronisms spread throughout: the Indians
    Barbicane’s crew speak in ancient Greek, Michel Ardan is
    dressed in a Sgt Peppers’ costume, Van Gogh turns up to paint the
    flag on the space shuttle, and topical dialects are used throughout
    to spice up the dialogue.

    “It’s a Monty Python idea, like in Holy Grail, this
    period comedy that ends with modern-day police cars and fire
    brigades” he notes, explaining that “wiser screenwriters than me
    have avoided turning Verne’s book into a film, because great as it
    may be, everyone’s talking all the time and nothing really happens.
    So we had to figure something out, implement tricks like that to keep
    the audience interested. Let’s hope we nailed it.”
