The story is exactly the same, but the visual presentation is different. It's pretty bizarre to watch for the first time if you know the English version well.
That sounds crazy, but interesting. Ever since seeing Hugo I've wanted to see more early movies. They seemed to take all kinds of creative risks back then that you don't see today.
