CORTO MALTESE RETROSPECTIVE: COMICS IN ANIMATION CINEMA

“Corto Maltese” is a sophisticated animated version of the legendary and beloved comic book hero created by the Italian artist Hugo Pratt Freedom doesn’t come cheap and no one knows that better than Corto Maltese. An enigmatic and captivating free spirit, Corto follows in the footsteps of Melville, Stevenson and Conrad. Driven by a strong sense of adventure and justice, he travels the world seeking fortune, helping the weak, or looking for a beautiful woman. His quick wit and ironic nature often rub people the wrong way, but his intelligence and daring get him out of tight spots every time. From the Pacific Islands to the heart of Asia, from Africa to the lost continent of Mû, the handsome and rakish hero finds action, romance and trouble wherever he goes.
