Flushed Away – a Very Funny Animated Movie

Clic for the Official Site

After learning about the work that has been done by David Couchariere, I saw one movie that I hadn’t seen before: Flushed Away. And yesterday while I was working on another animation, I was watching it in the background, but it was SO funny that I had to stop doing my animation and only see the movie.

I don’t know if it was that the jokes were made in a peculiar british accent, or that the look and feel of the movie was too much like Wallace and Gromit or Chiken Run, or because there were many delicious practical jokes, but definitely it’s a movie that is worth watching. And despite the plot is really common the whole combination of jokes and art keep your attention until the end.

This is an awesome Disney’s 2D movie, full of great great animation. From the beginning to the end makes you lough and have a good time. What make this movie more interesting is that all the story  is placed in the Inca Civilization in South America.

I just came across this couple videos in OnAnimation Web Site where you can see the rough animation on pencil and then in the next video, the final scene. It’s a great example of how a 2d movie looks like when it’s about to be finished.

It’s beautiful the rough line drawing and how the entire movement and subtle actions are already part of the animation, I have always considered 2d animators great artists because they made every frame a pice of art.

This movie was recomended by a sister’s friend, Lucy, who told me that it was a great movie and sure it is.

It’s about a Netherland girl whose family is murdered by the Gestapo in the  late Second World War. Then by chance, she is recruited by the resistance and became part of a plan that will retrieve Netherland prisoners. She is commissioned to infiltrate the Nazi Headquarters and seduce an officer…

The films grave your attention quickly and the script and acting are marvelous. Moreover, if you like war-time movies, this is definitely is a must see
