Werner Herzog Reads Madeline

Werner Herzog Reads Madeline

Bleak German director Werner Herzog reads and interprets the French children's book Madeline, a fine follow up to his take on Curious George.
"Their discipline was impeccable. They smiled at the good and frowned at the bad. But being children, their concept of good and evil was not fully formed. And it would shock a grown person how much gray area existed along the moral compass."
I hope he does Babar next. That book is overflowing with subtext. (From Ryan Iverson of Stupid is the New Awesome)
