Director Pascal Morelli's first big-screen animation feature.
A Genovese patron, Florenzo Ivaldi, financed the publishing of "Sgt Kirk," a review which, in 1967 published "La Ballade de la mer salée" ("The Ballad of the Salt Sea"), in which Italian-born Hugo Pratt's character Corto Maltèse first appeared.
From 1970 to 1984, Pratt lived mainly in France. Corto Maltèse became the recurring character of a series first published in "Pif Gadget" magazine from 1970 to 1973. After critical acclaim, the series was published in the form of albums and translated into 15 languages.
Pratt based the character of Corto Maltèse partly on his own experiences traveling around the world.
In 1997, two years after Pratt's death, director Pascal Morelli (a fan of Pratt's comic books) began working on an animated TV series based on the fictional hero. Soon, however, he decided instead to place the character in an animated feature film.
