Tintin starts to rally admirers in Angers

Within a few weeks, numerous adults, if not all, will have the opportunity to retie with their childhood. Screens in Angers will show the first of a cinematic trilogy of Tintin, directed by Steven Spielberg. On the 17th september, the Tintin universe started to appear on Ralliement square, for the pleasure of admirers. 

In fact, the four characters, Tintin, Captain Hadock and the Dupond and Dupont detectives were here on behalf Gemy, an Angers automobile dealership, to distribute to pedestrians leaflets untitled "The search for good opportunities" illustrated by the Hergé heroe. But that was completely removed by the four "sandwich men" - very realistic in the composition of their characters. Thanks to the likeness of two of them to the Hergé heroes, they attracted numerous passers-by who never realized they were there to promote Gemy and made of them a few pictures, convinced that a party among students was on way...

On that Heritage Days, the flavour of the past was not only in buildings. And one can bet the Tintin monument will still attract children from "7 to 77 years old".
