I think they should play around a little with the truth and show Hergé's ordinary life as well as his imaginary life as Tintin (and later captain Haddock)... and let him experience the people and incidents that were to be drawn in the books. Maybe a half realistic/half cgi film? Could also be interesting cinematic stuff with his thoughts on Catholicism and his nightmares.

they loved Walk the Line and Ray, and they weren’t squeaky-clean

Actualy the reveiwer for the new york times wasn't to happy about Ray
And I’d be careful what you wish for in that respect - remember Hergé left his wife for another woman…
by "wild love affairs" I ment like that Frida Kahlo film
Sorry should have been more clear

I went to see Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn yesterday and all through it I was thinking "This is all very well, but what does this add to the Tintin universe?"
It was during this that I came up with an idea: make a movie about the life of Herge and intertwine it with Tintin's adventures, creating a parallel between the life of the creator and the life of the creation. After all, didn't Herge himself say that Tintin was an aspect of himself personified?

Just thought I'd post this and see what other Tintinologists thought about it.

A TV dramatisation of Herge's life would not be a bad idea, especially one surrounding the war years when he had to draw a fine line between "collaboration" and "earning a living".

It's possible, I think. And for the focus of the biopic, perhaps the psychological emphasis on Hergé's thought on the process of making some of his best works (such as Tintin in Tibet), thought on his life condition (and the real Chang too, perhaps?) would be a nice thing. Just sayin':D.
