This review is from: Around The World In Eighty Days  [DVD] (DVD)
I was a very young boy when my father took me to see it and it has left me an everlasting impression. I've seen this film over and over again during the years, each time with the same pleasure, discovering new facets and details. One has no words to present the great David Niven, unique in his genre and the one and only Phileas Fogg. I possess the three versions of this film. One could say, this one is the original, a trip around the world, oldfashioned and romantic. The one with Pierce Brosnan is more adventurous and a pleasure to watch. Brosnan, as are many English actors, is a gentleman and a very convincing Fogg' I loved his character. The third one with Jackie Chan is completely different, tailored for Jackie Chan and his monkey tours. Different, imaginative and very pleasant. Three films, three epochs, three convincing ways of interpreting Jules Verne history.
