    Amazing. The ability to capture all the historical events in his life with simple yet powerful drawings makes me think; the right man at the right time.

    One of the best documentaries I've seen recently. It was a compelling and insightful look at an artist you whose work you might have seen but never realized where credit was due. I highly recommend seeing this one as it presents his experiences through his eyes and words. It also features great animated scenes of his work.

    The film was a truly entertaining look at an iconoclastic artist. Leave it to the puritan US to pigeonhole him as a childrens book illustrator and see inconsistency in his erotic and anti-war/anti-racist political work. While it seemed clear to me that this gifted artist's work knows no bounds - art oozes from his pores. One could compare him to Duchamp (not his art) in the way that the artist is his own art. I enjoyed the editing of the piece, even the CG animations. It was often funny, sometimes apparently unintentionally so. Inspiring!

    I can remember seeing Tomi Ungerer's childrens' tales even though I wasn't aware of Ungerer himself. His animation and slight subversiveness remain in one's mind into adulthood. The real Ungerer is a wonderful introvert who has such an interesting and compelling life history.
