A British War Vetran in pastel form.
21 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a Stop Motion animated film by Peter Lord from Aardman the company that did Wallace and Gromit.

It's a short about a Vetran telling his service in the War. It shows flashbacks of his younger self to make things less boring.

It's more of a short documentary than a clay animated cartoon.

Please note that the War Vetran has a British English accent that's hard to understand when hearing him speak. Luckily the flashbacks give an idea what he's talking about.

Nothing inappropriate in it. A kid might ask "Why is the old man mumbling a lot?" You try to think of an explanation that's easy for he or she to understand.

A nicely done short with some humor here and there. A good example of how a British Man served in WW2.

I give it an 7/10
