Product Description

Product Description

Animated comedy following the loveable plasticine pals in which they set up a lucrative window cleaning business. While working they meet wool shop owner Wendolene (Anne Reid) and Wallace becomes infatuated with her. Meanwhile, Gromit becomes interested in the case of some disappearing sheep, believing Wendolene's dog to be responsible. However, the devious dog frames Gromit and Wallace must pull himself together in time to save the reputation of his friend.

From Amazon.co.uk

Hot from the international triumph of The Wrong Trousers, clay animator Nick Park knew that his third Wallace & Gromit film was going to have to be the biggest and best adventure yet for the mild-mannered inventor Wallace and his perceptive pooch Gromit. With the ambitiously zany plot of A Close Shave, Park and his fellow animators rose to the occasion and their film won the 1995 Academy Award (Park's second Oscar) for Best Animated Short. This time out, Wallace & Gromit have teamed up to provide a window-washing service, and that's how Wallace meets the lovely Wendolene Ramsbottom, a wool-shop owner whose malevolent dog Preston turns out to be the mastermind of a sheep-napping scheme! Of course, no Wallace & Gromit adventure can be without a grandiose gadget, so Wallace's latest invention is the Knit-O-Matic, a yarn-making machine capable of shearing a whole flock of sheep just a bit too efficiently! When the villainous Preston gains control of the mechanical knitting marvel, Gromit must race to the rescue, and A Close Shave reaches new heights of clay-animation mastery. Every shot is a testament to Nick Park's patience, his clever ingenuity, and his filmmaking flair. The movie's so technically impressive, in fact, that the whole world wondered where Park could go next. It was clear that Wallace & Gromit would eventually star in an animated feature-length movie, since this marvellous 30-minute film represents its own kind of short-form perfection. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

Nick Park & Co. strike again, as the clay duo are at their finest here: Wallace, hopelessly in love and, well, hopeless about it ("Not even [sniff] Wensleydale?" the distraught boffin asks his heretofore fantasy woman, who has just admitted a dislike for cheese); and Gromit, who is, well, out-Gromited by Sean the shorn sheep. Not in debt and working as a well-oiled team for once, the pair find extra-ordinary adventure in their everyday life, culminating in Bond-like chase sequence and rescue.

This delightful video will entertain children and adults alike! The straight-forward, rather thick-headed Wallace and his cynical, world-wise dog Gromit are part-time window washers who uncover a sheep rustling scam in this hilarious Nick Park claymation feature! Wallace falls in love! Gromit is arrested and jailed! Shaun (the every hungry sheep) might just save the day! If you've seen "Chicken Run" and thought it was good, take a look at "A Close Shave", and all the Wallace and Gromit adventures for stories you'll watch over and over again!

I thought this was an excellent portrait of the famous wallace and grommit, the work that goes into making these videos must be tremendous, the different characters really make it worth watching with wendoline and shaun the sheep, Can't wait till chicken run comes out, I bet it's just as good, even though nothing could ever replace w and g.

Delivered quickly and product as expected. A Close Shave is going to be a Classic one day with the wit of W&G coming through a treat!
