The polarization 3-D system was already very good but complicated. - A good sense of humour accompanies this tale of Jules Verne revisited: Verne's novel is the basic reference point, and the contempary travellers are also on the track a missing brother/father. We start in Iceland and erupt from the Vesuvius. An amusement park ride in the company of the sympathetic trio.
