While the story of Hans and Margaret Reyersbach and their creation, Curious George, is an interesting story, the best reason to watch this film is because it was made so incredibly well. This stylish documentary really impressed me--with lovely drawings done in Hans' style, great camera work, wonderful interviews as well as archival footage and the Reyersbach's original work all work together to present a never dull story. What I also appreciate is that it was, at times, no holds barred...meaning that while it celebrates their work, it also is truthful enough to acknowledge that Margaret was, in some ways, an awful person! Warts and all...a sign of an objective study of the individuals. Well worth seeing.
