|'A Trip to the Moon' 1902|
|'The Adventures of Baron Munchausen' 1989|
There is one other film, made a lot later, that reminds me a lot of this film. 'The Adventures of Baron Munchausen' came out in 1989 and I think that it was hugely inspired by 'A Trip to the Moon,' because of the sets, costumes and overall story.
I think that 'A Trip to the Moon' was a revolutionary step, not just in film but also in story telling altogether. This fantasy tale about traveling to the moon brought an escape from reality to the people in 1902. A year that was close to oncoming disaster, war and poverty in the real world. That's what I love about films and games, it gives an escape from a world we may not want to live in. And watching 'A Trip to the Moon' made me feel like a child again.
