.. Tintin And I
Why do the Adventures of Tintin continue to fascinate readers long into adulthood? Hergé, attempts to answer that question in an exclusive interview never before seen in its entirety. Tintin et moi is the original record of this fascinating conversation, edited to include other archival material and, of course, drawings from the 23 Tintin albums.
In October 1971, the celebrated artist agreed to be interviewed by a 23-year-old student who at the time was planning to write a book on Remi’s life. For four full days, Hergé, a usually very private man, confided in the student as he had never done previously in public, revealing deeply personal aspects of his life in a kind of confession therapy. He explains that the Adventures of Tintin are intimately connected to the tensions and struggles of the 20th century, as well as to his own life. The film is an autobiographical journey into the psyche and brilliant work of Hergé, in his own words.
