First off, I confess - I love Wallace & Gromit! I even have a Wallace & Gromit alarm clock and a Shaun the Sheep backpack...
For those not familiar with these characters, Wallace is an inventor and Gromit his silent but extremely intelligent dog. They've been featured in numerous shorts and movies, most of which have won an Oscar, and this short is also up for an Academy Award.
What makes them endearing is the humor and expressiveness. It's all done with clay animation, which means it takes over a year just to make one of these shorts. The details in the sets is incredible! Nick Parks is the creator and genuis behind these British characters, who have been around for 20 years now.
In this short, Wallace & Gromit run a bakery. Meanwhile, bakers are being murdered! A chance encounter with the former Bake O Lite girl sends Wallace head over heels in love. However, Gromit is suspicious...
If you like a little murder-mystery with your animation, then this is the film for you!
Includes an episode of Shaun the Sheep on the disc, too.
