Main Language - French with English subtitles
Professor Calculus’s 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 Zalamea – is stolen Tintin, Captain Haddock, Calculus and Snowy the dog make for Spain to investigate. In a riotous adventure 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 Castifiore can Tintin save the day?
Jean-Pierre Talbot, who became a life-long friend of Tintin creator Hergé, 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.
Adapted by Asterix creator René Goscinny this lively adventure is another must for Tintin fans.
