Amazingly for those who haven't seen it (and usually neither heard of it), this unknown animated masterpiece regularly makes it into the shortest short-list of best films of those who have - and i don't mean list of animated movies, but movies in general. Uncomparable to anything else - much like Twain himself - it's every aspect is just amazing. It will feast your eyes (as much as any claymation ... read more

Description: Based on elements from the stories of Mark Twain this feature-length Claymation® fantasy follows the adventures of Tom Sawyer Becky Thatcher and Huck Finn as they stowaway aboard the interplanetary balloon of Mark Twain. Twain disgusted with the Human Race is intent upon finding Halley's Comet and crashing into it achieving his "destiny." It's up to Tom Becky and Huck to convince him hat his judgment is wrong and that he still has much to offer humanity that might make a difference. Their efforts aren't just charitable; if they fail they will share Twain's fate. Along the way they use a magical time portal to get a de ... (more)

“Amazingly for those who haven't seen it (and usually neither heard of it), this unknown animated masterpiece regularly makes it into the shortest short-list of best films of those who have - and i don't mean list of animated movies, but movies in general. Uncomparable to anything else - much like Twain himself - it's every aspect is just amazing. It will feast your eyes (as much as any claymation can), fill your heart (with a both joy, sorrow, warmth and eeriness), boggle your brain, and make your jaw hurt. And you'll still have to find time to enjoy acting (yes, _acting_ of the clay figures here is just amazing) and clever solutions. For example, Mysterious Stranger is the best visualization of Devil(?) i ever saw in film.

Some have pointed out that it is "not necessarily a kids” read more

" Date: 1/17/2022 Viewed: Amazon Prime Re-Watch Note: I haven't seen The Adventures of Mark Twain in ages. I remember watching this film in elementary school when we were required to read Mark Twain books in third grade. I'm glad it was chosen as this week's Film Club pick because it gives me an excuse to watch it again. In my opinion, The Adventures of Mark Twain is still a cool film. My favorite aspect of the film is the aesthetics because I adore how they use claymation for the characters"

"2.3. Will Vintonin näkemys Mark Twainista. Animaatioteknisesti tämä on kyllä uskomattoman hieno leffa, mutta varsinainen juoni on kankea ja poukkoileva kuin mikä."

"Mark Twain dies. A Mark Twain book floods, transforms and melts the inside of a space ship to a story of Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher and Huckleberry Finn going on a kamikaze run into a comet on Mark Twain's space ship. He is plumb crazy after all. He uses various contraptions to entrap living creatures within machines in the form of goo to use as storytelling apparatuses of varying quality. Mark also enjoys discussing the amount of influence naked people have in society. With little girls. W"
