Details

Professor Calculus' dreams of ending world hunger are brought one step closer by the creation of a desert-proof orange, deep blue in colour. But it seems he's not the only one interested in this magnificent scientific discovery. When the strange blue orange – invented by Spanish Professor Zalamandea – is stolen, Tintin, Captain Haddock, Calculus and Snowy the dog make for Spain to investigate. In a riotous adventure – which boasts the influence of Asterix co-creator Rene Goscinny – Tintin and friends must overcome violent kidnappers, deadly traps and unscrupulous rich adventurers to rescue the orange and themselves. With help from a gang of enterprising kids and big-hearted opera menace Bianca Castafiore can Tintin save the day?

Jean-Pierre Talbot, a life-long friend of Tintin creator Herge, plays the boy-reporter for the second time in this wonderful live-action adventure and is well-supported by Jean Bouise's (Le grand bleu) excellent comic performance as the irrepressible Captain Haddock. A must for Tintin and comic book fans.
