The Calculus affair....not fair...
25 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I completely agree with the precedent user.This first cartoon based on Hergé 's "Calculus Affair" is a fiasco.Few scenes recall the excellent comic strip,one of the Belgian writer's best about the cold war.The only good idea is to have included the Castafiore and the scenes in the wings of the opera .All that remains was written from start to finish by dunces.The endless scenes in the fortress are an insult to Hergé's talent :the writer only devoted one page to this part of the story .

Remade at the end of the eighties ,and, that time,it was an accurate adaptation of "l'Affaire Tournesol".

By large,all the Tintin cartoons from the sixties were poorly made .
