Best documentary on both Herge and Tintin.
29 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After I first heard about this on the internet, I immediately looked high and low for this documentary. When I finally found it, I was all set in watching the whole TV special.

This documentary is about Herge and his life's work on the Tintin series. The whole thing is presented by a man who had a tape recorded interview with Herge back in 1972. Preserved all those decades and used for this TV documentary with the usage of visual reenactments and archive footage of Herge to give the documentary a spiritual/immortal feeling to it. A lot of the archive footage of Herge was redone in a pencil like format to make his appearance look like that of his own drawing styles. As well as a collection of screen-shots of various Tintin books combine with sound of fixes to give them a living effect to them. There's also a few interviews with people who knew Herge as a friend or as a relative who express their feelings about him.

The great thing about this documentary is it gives you the idea of what Herge was like when he was still living. And it has almost all of the important facts of his life. If you're a fan of the books, then you'll enjoy this documentary a lot. If it ever becomes available on Region 1 DVD, then I would definitely buy it.
