"A classic tale"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you remember “Watership Down” as a child, or you wish to share this classic with your children, the 25th Anniversary edition is for you. Martin Rosen has taken Richard Adams' timeless tale & presents a tale about loyalty & adventure with beautifully rendered, if slightly dated, animation. The tale of a group of rabbits leaving their warren to escape a coming disaster, to set up their own home, is full of parallels with our own human existence. It does have its' dark moments which may not be suitable for younger children but hey, isn't Bambi remembered for sad moments? The makers have even recognised the fact of the darker side by having a double sided sleeve, the original movie poster artwork on one side, or a more “gentler” version on the other. This edition comes with good extras, including a commentary by Director Rosen. A must have for any fan of animation movies.

Description

A timeless classic comes alive in this enchanting movie based on the worldwide best-selling novel by Richard Adams. A delightful film for audiences of all ages.

Nestled among the rolling hills and peaceful meadows of England lives a community of rabbits. When their warren is threatened, a small group of brave rabbits escapes into the unknown countryside in search of a new home. Led by the visionary Fiver, the courageous Bigwig, the clever Blackberry, and the honourable Hazel, they face daunting challenges, and use their strength and cunning to survive, while pursuing their dream.

Director Martin Rosen frames the tale largely at the expense of the rabbits, so that we identify with each one. Packed with excitement and adventure, Watership Down is an engaging, thrilling tale that celebrates traditional values of loyalty, courage, and spirit.
