Another dollop of animated mirth and mayhem with the cheese-loving inventor Wallace (voice of Peter Sallis) and his long-suffering dog Gromit. This time around, the pair have converted their home into the 'Top Bun' bakery - complete with rooftop windmill - but with 12 local bakers having mysteriously gone missing, Gromit worries that they'll soon make up the baker's dozen. Wallace meanwhile is oblivious to the danger, having fallen head over heels for former Bake-O-Lite bread babe, Piella Bakewell (voice of Sally Lindsay). With his master otherwise engaged, it's up to Gromit to rise to the occasion and solve the mystery before Wallace becomes the next victim of the cereal killer.
Just how good is it to have Wallace & Gromit back in their natural home? A Matter Of Loaf and Death finds the pair back in a half hour format, with the plasticine duo in charge of a thriving bakery. Business is going well, and nothing could seemingly go wrong…
Only it soon does. Because A Matter Of Loaf and Death introduces the Cereal Killer, a mysterious figure who has been killing all of the other bakers in town. Wallace, of course, is oblivious to all of this, going about his work with his merry asides and gleeful naivety. And this time his faithful hound, Gromit, is too distracted to notice any impending threat too, courtesy of his growing attraction to another hound by the name of Fluffles. It’s quite a recipe, and makes for a very entertaining half hour.
While A Matter Of Loaf and Death isn’t quite up to the highs of the pair’s adventures to date, it nonetheless finds Wallace & Gromit, and Aardman Animations, in very strong form. The level of attention and detail here is quite astounding, and the script is as packed with wry gags for the older viewers as it is with material for the youngsters.
In fact, if you cut it down the middle, the words ‘family entertainment’ would be found running right through the middle of it. Because A Matter Of Loaf and Death not only sprinkles in lots of laughs, at-times stunning animation and a fair amount of storytelling, it’s genuinely entertainment that anyone can enjoy. More, please… --Simon BrewSee all Product Description

There seems to be something not quite right about Piella, and even her poodle looks scared. Surely Piella doesn't know anything about the murders? And surely no one is out to kill Wallace?
If you haven't seen this on the tv, I don't want to ruin it for you, so you will just have to watch it to find out who the killer is, and see if Wallace, or Gromit can find true love. What I really like about this is the more subtle humour, such as the tribute to that famous scene from 'Ghost', and the album covers that pop up, just look at the titles and singers.
All in all a very funny edition to go with the rest of your Wallace and Gromit collection. Will be enjoyed by all the family, or just by yourself.
As usual the technique and visual creativity of the scenes is as delicious as amazing, and it is all conducted with a mix of naif and gentleness ad some crazy and anarchic spirit that comes up every now and then, in the unexpected action and reaction of the characters and some subtext where you can tell who made these films is not a bunch of innocent guys.
A mix that makes this film, too, enjoyable by everyone and intelligent as well.
Blu ray is of course excellent
Wallace and Gomit now run a bakery which get Wallace attention from the new love of his life. Unfortunately it is only Gromit that sees her evil ways!
The series is as good as ever, with many visual gags and laugh out load moments. Some great British TV!
left wondering 'what happened there ? Excellent picture quality - but then it should be when you consider the Technology available
The “Claymation” animation heroes of `A Grand Day Out,' `The Wrong Trousers,' `A Close Shave' and `The Curse of the Were-Rabbit,' are back in another classic 'who-doughnut' mystery from the Four time Academy Award® winning Director Nick Park.
Cheese-loving inventor Wallace [Peter Sallis] and his long-suffering faithful dog Gromit have this time started a brand new bread baking business entitled the 'Top Bun' bakery in 62 West Wallaby Street that now houses a new bakery, complete with ovens, robotic kneading arms and an old-fashioned rooftop windmill. Business is flourishing at `Top Bun,' but it's not due to Gromit's skills with dough, but somebody has killed 12 other bakers in town. Not that Wallace is worried or oblivious to the danger, but instead he is dough-eyed in love with Piella Bakewell [Sally Lindsay], former star of the Bake-O-Lite bread commercials.
While they enjoy being the 'Toast of the Town,' Gromit soon realises his master's life is in jeopardy, and turns sleuth to solve the escalating mystery – before Wallace becomes the next victim of the Cereal Killer's baker's dozen.
FILM FACT: As with the previous Wallace and Gromit films, ‘A Matter of Loaf and Death' was nominated in 2010 for an OSCAR® by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science; however, sadly it did not win. It was also nominated for Best Animated Short. 2009 Annie Awards: Won for best Animated Short Subject. 2009 BAFTA Awards: Won Best Short Animation. 2009 Chicago International Children’s Film Festival: 2nd place for Animated Short Film or Video.Read more ›
it is surprising how detailed the storyline is given that its runtime is just under half an hour,but that is the joy of Wallace & Gromit,it has so much ligh heated humour for you to take in you can enjoy it way more than once.
this is full of references to popular culture and other films such as (Ghost,Aiens,and even The Matrix)and with a 'cereal' killer on the loose the possibilities of slapstick is endless, and it delivers by the mill load.
it was so great that this aired at the end of such a fabulous day so all my family could sit and watch it after unwrappng the tree presents,having some tea, and a slice of Chritmas Cake.
a true natured special episode that i cannot wait to see again,nd again,and you get the idea.
highly recommended purchase.
