it was amazing

The essential modern world story. A man who acts more like a machine than a human being with emotions manages to do the unthinkable, round the earth in 80 days. As clockwork-driven as Phileas Fogg acts he is a person of our time, glued and a slave to these new devices, forgetting the messy and inacurate beauty of our lives. Yet he stops to save a princess and falls in love with her. How ironic, but how hopeful for humanity.
