I am a self-confessed fan of Raymond Briggs and all his works. Ivor is a lesser known work though has all the ingredients of the famous Bear and Snowman stories.
The animation is superb and has a top notch cast of voices including Jane Horrocks and Alison Steadman. This is a film that will appeal to kids and grown ups alike.
The real bonus of the DVD however is the Raymond Briggs documentary that accompanies the title film. Briggs is a reclusive, eccentric wonder who admits to chronic depression and is revealed by his friends, of whom he has many young and old, as hating travel and having once gone to Las Vegas and hating it so much he returned home the next day.
This is a great treat and worth anybody's money to be entertained by a true artistic genius
