A groundbreaking sci-fi adventure anime from Katsuhiro Otomo, the director of Akira.

Young Ray Steam is a teenage factory worker in Victorian-era Britain. A keen mechanical genius, he becomes embroiled in a fantastic adventure when his grandfather sends him a package containing his latest revolutionary invention - a 'steam ball.'

"Jules Verne would have liked this movie. So would Buster Keaton. Nothing beats the chase in Steamboy's first reel: Thomas Hardy meets Indiana Jones. One of the most entertaining films of the year" Urban Cinefile
