Werner Herzog reads Curious George

"And vat does ze fat man get for his troubles?
Nothing but a broken jaw and to be laughed at by mousies."

If Germany ever produced something reminiscent of brilliance, it is this. Forget Fritz Lang, Ernst Lubitsch and the other guys: Werner Herzog reads Curious George.

Okay, it's not really Herzog reading. But it could be. A dark and existentialist update of a children's classic.
