Wallace (Peter Sallis) and his loyal dog, Gromit, set out to discover the mystery behind the garden sabotage that plagues their village and threatens the annual giant vegetable growing contest.


I've never seen the the television series this is based on, but I remember that I wanted to see the film very badly when it came out, pretty much because I was 11 and obsessed with bunnies. Now, 11 year later, I've finally watched it, and it blew me away!

"Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" is an amusing, creative and colourful animated flick that is entertaining from start to finish.

And it is well written as well. Even though it is simple - but easy for kids to follow - and not very original, the story is funny and engaging and also reserves some surprises along the way, turns that may seem bizarre, but that totally makes sense and seems normal in this world. And the subplots are interesting as well.

The film is also filled with British humour - if you love it, you'll love the film - that suits both kids and adults. Sure, there are some jokes that target more adults - like in the scenes between Wallace and Lady Tottingham - but overall everyone can laugh at it.

I've found the characters quite eccentric and memorable, not to mention how hilarious they are. But since I've never seen the series, I believe the filmmakers should have taken some time to properly introduce Wallace and Gromit for those not familiar with the series. In spite of that, it was still exciting to follow the two friends in their adventure.

The best and most striking aspect of this film is indeed the clay animation, that is what makes this film so unique. The meticulous attention to details, the beautifully expressive faces of characters that seem more human than those computer generated. It's really amazing what can be hand-crafted.


  1. Cara Sonia, spesso quando guardo dei fil di animazione io mi trasformo come un bambino, e sorrido, sempre molto divertito. Ciao e buona domenica, con un abbraccio e un sorriso:) sorridere fa bene!

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed this! Wallace & Gromit is brilliant, and so well made. If you ever get the chance I can recommend a short of theirs, The Wrong Trousers :)
