From comic book: The Adventures of Tintin by Hergé

Film adaptation of the famous Belgian comic book series follows an adventurous young reporter as he sets out on a treasure hunt with a seafaring captain.

ABSTRACT
Tintin, a journalist operating out of Brussels, Belgium with trusty canine sidekick Snowy in tow, purchases a miniature model of a ship called the Unicorn at an outdoor market. Unbeknownst to the young man, the seemingly mundane model ship contains a scroll providing clues to a highly valuable treasure, a fact that sees him becoming the target of several heated altercations and ultimate prisoner aboard a vessel called the Karaboudjan, where he meets a permanently-drunk captain named Haddock and becomes the man's unlikely accomplice in a hunt for loot left behind by his late father's wrecked ship. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score.
