Wallace and Gromit: Transitions

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit loves playing with shapes in scene transitions. Throughout the movie, Nick Park takes objects – for example, Lady Tottington’s hair – at the end of one scene and start the next scene with a cloud with the same fluffy shape of Totty’s hair. There were several instances of this happening, like paintings of Wallace’s clients turning into their real-life iterations. Additionally, this playfulness is present throughout the scenes as well. In one scene, Lady Tottington is rubbing her precious vegetables, sumptuously large and bosom-shaped. Or in the church scene, Tottington stands in front of an altar with large angel wings, while Victor stands in the crowd in front of someone’s pitchfork, effectively acting as devil horns.

A plump tongue.
