Audience Reviews for Tintin et moi (Tintin and Me) (Tintin and I)

In 1971, a student named Numa Sadoul conducted an interview with Georges Remy, better known to the world by his pen-name of Hergé. The interview was published in book form shortly after but in a dramatically altered state due to Hergé requesting a mu...(read more)ltitude of changes. The original interview survived in the form of tape recordings, however, and it is these that are the basis for this film. The interview was extraordinary because Sadoul conducted his interview at a time when he found Hergé unusually reflective, honest and open. This openness is what lifts this film from what could have been a mundane look at the artist's life to a work that captures Hergé's heart and passion. Hergé plots his life for Sadoul with the kind of charm and tone you expect of a favourite uncle. There are times when he is hesitant to discuss certain issues but the interview seems to act as a form of therapy to the artist and we are give a unique look at his early life, his relationship with the church and the hardships caused by World War II. Hergé is even forthcoming about his relationships with the women in his life. Interspersed with the audiotape footage (which uses clever computer technology to sync the words with footage of Hergé giving a separate TV interview) are comments by Hergé experts and Tintin readers. The experts add depth to the story, while the readers show that Hergé's work continues to have a strong impact on the world. This is superb - Herge explained by phase's of life - And it's Herge himself who is the narrator - it pure genius.. Whew!
