Captain Nemo and the Underwater City

Synopsis: When their sailing ship founders at sea, several of the passengers are rescued and find themselves aboard a submarine in the command of Captain Nemo. They are amazed to find that Nemo has built a vast underwater city. Men, women and children all live in harmony in Nemo's idyllic paradise that is free of war and lives off the riches that they've found at the bottom of sea. The new arrivals are distressed to learn however that as they've now seen the city, they cannot leave and must live there for the rest of their days. That doesn't sit well with many of the new arrivals some of whom set about to find a way to leave at whatever cost.

CAPTAIN We are not

a suburban city.

All passengers should be

prepared to leave the ship.

Please proceed.

We have to go.

Senator Fraser... Thank God

you're at least ready, sir.

How bad is it? Water quickly

penetrates, pumps slowly cancel.

Rescue boats. Are there enough?

Do not worry, sir, there's

room for everything.

I just wanted to be sure that the

equipment and children were safe.

Go! Get out, Forester.

What about our luggage?

Just go to the deck.

Hurry up. Hurry, honey.

It's fine.

Get out of here!

Get ready!

Leave a heavy load.

Do you have an idea where we are?

Not far from the English coast.

The English coast is 200 miles from here.

Listen, we have a box

for gold in the cabin.

Look, brother and I can

not take it alone.

Get out of the way...

Come on, Philip, quick, fast!

Put me in a boat. Stand behind.

First put the boy in the boat.

Mum! Mum! Here's your mom.

Push him back. Tonemo!

Leave the boat!

It's falling apart!

It's falling apart!

Slowly, sir, slowly.

So, sir, sit here. That's right.

Are they all embedded?

Yes sir.

All survivors are embedded, sir.

Four men, a woman and a child.

Turning the course to

an underwater city?

Here you go. Drink this.

What is it?

Cheese shark juice.

It's an orange juice...

Come on, your stomach is working.

Great! Huh! I'll be one more.

They're looking for you on the bridge, sir.

Excuse me, can I go with you?

I want to talk to your captain.

If you want.

Where did you travel?

From New York to Bristol.

Joeeb reports, sir.

He's one of the survivors with me.

My name is Fraser.

Senator Robert Frazier.

I'm afraid they did not

tell me your name, Captain.

It's not your ship's name.

I'm Captain Nemo.

You sail in Nautillus.

You wanted to see me? Yes, Captain.

Let me thank you for saving us.

I do not want praise. I do

not like putting my own

crew at risk during

rescue operations,

You're burned just because

it's the only one.

The opportunity was to

leave you drowning.

We are very grateful to you.

Senator... of the United States?

Yes, I was on an important

task for my government.

I'm sure the government wants...

You must be clear, Senator.

I am not interested in the

gratitude of your government.

Diplomatic withdrawal, Senator?

To spend diplomacy on

the dictator, Captain?

Senator, I see that we

have two of us about a lot.

What we need to talk

before we get home.

Home? Where is that?

In the underwater city.

Have you lost your

word again, Senator?

If my eyes do not tell me otherwise...

this could be a form

of life after death.

Your eyes do not cheat you.

Now you will experience a new life.

This is my home.

Take Timothy.

I see that you are all alive and well.

I hope you have everything you need.

Sir, can I introduce myself?

My name is Lumaks.

Later, Mr. Lumaks. I've been a long time.

Absent and some things

require my attention.

I just wanted to make sure

you were comfortable.

Captain Nemo, we all

appreciate Your concern,

but we also want to

know where we are?

You are in my quarters.

Excuse me now.

Well, this tells us a lot.

Why is he mad at you?

He's not very excited about our presence.

Why, is there a reason?

I think Captain Nemo does not

recognize the need for any reason.

I do not understand what kind of harm it would

have suffered, to tell us where we are.

I mean, it's not logical at all.

It's a shame if she has something to hide.

Look at this room. No windows.

We are completely closed.

What does this Captain Nemo think he is?

The one who saved us

from the sea grave.

That attitude does not help us, Mr.


If we know the last

position, I think...

Mr. Svolou, can we do something for you?

Oh, no, no.

What did you intend to do?

Gold... From pure gold.

My brother finds gold for a mile, and

the opposite of the wind direction.

If he said it's gold,

then it's gold.

Now I can give you a real

welcome to the underwater city.

Join me, please.

Mr Svolou, is this gold too?

It's worth the whole kingdom!

The whole room is of gold.

I hope you like food.

I do not care about food, I

want to know where I am!

I will answer your questions when I

want, Mr. Lumaks! Serve yourself.

Give me that?


The best steak I've ever tasted.

Kit. -A fish?

Kit is a mammal, not a fish.

You are well informed young men.

It's my mom

she said. She knows everything

about animals and fish.

You'll see that it's

all tastier than veal.

It's very changeable mood.

Mhm. And we encourage him in this.

He's the one who cares.

I think they'll make trouble.

More wine, Senator?

Keep it away from None.

Drink this, Mr. Lomax will help you calm

your nerves. We should not attack him.

It's hard for all of us,

we're all stressed.

It's the worst of me. Why?

I can not stand a closed space.

I was trapped in a tunnel. Mining

window, I'm a mining engineer.

They pulled me out after 7 days.

It's not the same. How is it?

If not, then what?

Captain Nemo, I have to ask you.

Why are we locked in here? Who are you?

All in its time, Mr. Lomax.

And when will it be?

When I decide. What the hell do you think you are?

- Yes, Captain, who are you?

You were a wonderful host. Why

not satisfy our curiosity.

You are in a city that is 10,000

meters below the surface of the sea.

It is very nice.

I'm glad you feel that way.

Why? - Because you will

stay here for a while.
