Today, Herr Helius has ambitious plans to build a spaceship... and take it to the Moon! Windegger, his chief engineer, will be going, and so will Prof. Manfeldt, now living in a cramped garret alone with his theory.

Considering its time and conditions, it is very courageous and well designed and often considered to be one of the first "serious" science fiction films. Though some things are out of facts of today it is really an unforgettable sample and pioneer of space films in the history of cinema.
It had to be more excited than Star Wars in the beginning of '20s. The types chosen are quite interesting and though it's a silent movie, the explanations are quite satisfactory enabling the movie comprehensible. For the lovers of the art of cinema, it is a film absolutely to bee seen and to be added into their archive.
