An ode to Aardman which fans should love
30 April 2018 | by benm-41751See all my reviews

This film is a celebration of Aardman, describing its humble origins and its breakthrough successes, with doting commentary from various people who have worked for or with the studio. It's a fun hour that'll go by in a flash for anyone who loves Aardman, but it doesn't go too deep into the film-making process-which could probably warrant its own entire documentary.
