Bernard: The Desert Island And Other Adventures [D&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Bernard
Short, often breathtakingly funny, episodes of the misadventures of a polar bear. The storyboards and animation are quite inspired, it's not just a question of just being 3D, but the motion is brilliant. Added to this the detail is impressive - cars & boats tend to have rusty spots while walls are not uniform but have cracks and/or bits of plaster missing.

I don't tend to look at animation more than once, unless it has that indefinable something - when I can look at the same thing 3 or 4 times. But even this is small beer for certain episodes of Bernard.

A most entertaining movie with that greatest gift - humour, to which should be added a gratifyingly complex plot. It's been some time since I came across such an enjoyable film and hence am at a loss why it is not better known.

Our team is a group of pretty incompetent French robbers who are sent to do a job in Chicago, where, without straining a muscle, they accrue a number violent enemies. I say team since a fair number are involved which makes it impossible to draw all the characters in depth, all the more so since there are so many other people involved.

Give it a try and enjoy it for what it is instead of trying to draw parallels with other pictures.

I found myself laughing a number of times - which I rate highly. True, there were quite long sections which I read with a more funereal expression, particularly when I felt a 'Laugh' sign onna stick was being waved at the readers. The other definite plus was the high key role of Lord Vetinary, which more than compensated for an (improved) Moist von Lipwig and worse, his girlfriend (after her second appearance the thought 'first against the wall when the revolution comes' became irrepressible).

Not near his best but a bit of laughter + Vetinary = Read.
