湯米·溫格爾曾被安徒生大獎評審團盛讚「兒童繪本創作世界的大巨人」, 作品充滿黑色幽默,擅長以尖銳諷刺的觀點和幽默詼諧的語言,提出對人性、教育、政治、社會現象各種看法。他的風格大膽、鮮豔、創新、叛逆又獨特,在他的繪本中,常隱藏血腥的情節來增加張力,這使他備受爭議,但在透過他獨特的觀察角度看世悲,往往又令你重新思考然後會心一笑。

除了繪本創作,他也曾替導演史丹利·庫柏力克為電影〈奇愛博士〉繪製海報,繪製反越戰海報表達和平理念,廣告、雕塑、甚至是建築設計也難不得他,多面向的工作生涯使得他難以被歸類。湯米·溫格爾根本是設計界的明星,但他卻在中年選擇遠離城囂定居鄉間,白天與大自然相處靜思觀察,晚上投入工作專心作畫。〈童心未泯湯米‧溫格爾〉將讓你看到湯米‧溫格爾前瞻的思考模式及絢爛飽滿又恬淡的一生。

Tomi Ungerer is an artist who created some of the worlds best known children^s books in the 1960s and 1970s, but his erotic art eventually got him banned from New York^s publishing industry. He was far out, eccentric, uninhibited and, as fellow illustrator Maurice Sendak claims, “No one, I dare say, no one was as original.” In all, Ungerer authored 140 childrens books, and has received France^s highest award for culture, the Legion d’Honneur, as well as the Hans Christian Andersen Award for illustration. He also designed the original poster for Stanley Kubrik^s film, Dr. Strangelove and numerous political posters against the Vietnam War. This documentary, including first ever animations of much of Tomi^s work, is the story of his groundbreaking art and his rollercoaster life. In children^s books, advertising, sculpture and even architectural design, he was a superstar, but he also burned bridges and stirred controversy. Now Tomi, with a devilish grin, gets to tell this story in his own words.
