This stop-motion adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s children classic has fair claim to be the story’s definitive screen version.
While its lovingly details visuals are an obvious influence on Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr Fox, the tone avoids modern humour to keep fidelity to Grahame’s laidback rhythms.
Such bucolic charm was nostalgic in 1983; today, its rich, handmade textures evoke not only England’s past but the pleasures of a simpler age of animation.
