Synopsis


A Grand Day Out was the first film in the famous stop-motion series, Wallace and Gromit by four-time Oscar-winner Nick Park and it didn’t win an Oscar solely because, that year, Park was defeated by none other than himself. The story follows the title characters who design a home-made rocket so they could throw a picnic on the Moon, because Wallace, like any true Englishman, is simply obsessed with crackers and cheese. Besides the funny premise, A Grand Day Out features a robot – a frequent SF motif, and dynamic scenes that have come to epitomise this claymation classic. (Silvestar Mileta)
