Deluxe Edition includes DVD. 2012 release from the French duo. Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip to the Moon) is a classic
silent film by revered French director Georges Méliès. Released in 1902, this legendary 16-minute film is widely
considered one of the most important works in film history, and the very first to use science fiction as it's theme,
incorporating special effects that were very state-of-the-art at the turn of the 19th century. It was loosely based on
two popular novels of the time: Jules Verne's from the Earth to the Moon and H. G. Wells the First Men in the Moon.
Eager to put a contemporary spin on this classic silent film and reach a new audience, the foundations decided to
approach Air's Nicolas Godin and Jean-Benoit Dunckel, to compose an original modern soundtrack, an enormous honor for
French musicians, considering the film's place in the canon of French cinema.
