Product Overview

1888 is the modern retelling of Jules Verne's voyage on the Santa Isabel. Jules Verne joins world-renowned Italian explorer Stradelli, in an expedition up the South American river of Orinoco. The enormity of the Amazonian jungle and the length of the river turns them into excited little boys. Along the way they pickup a young stranger - a woman disguised as a man, searching for her lost father. As they ascend up the river the world around them gets more surreal, and events unfold that threaten the very life of the greatest story teller of his time - Jules Verne must survive to tell this last extraordinary tale.

ReviewSource Variety
Review The pleasures of watching Jules Verne venture down the lush Orinoco River for equal bits adventure, science and l'amour come across modestly in co-writer-director Alfredo J. Anzola's "1888: The Extraordinary Voyage of the Santa Isabel." Shot and staged in a manner best suited to television, pic reps a fine armchair saga that, with a few trims, is wonderfully suited for smart family vid viewing...A bigger canvas would have clearly best served this tale, but pic's small scale revives the tradition of Disney's engaging adventure pics of yore, such as "Treasure Island." Anzola's acting trio easily mix and match, with Spanish dialogue shifting into Italian and back again without hesitation. Pic was Venezuela's official Oscar submission, only to be disqualified when required paperwork wasn't filed with the Acad.
