Quentin Blake’s Clown
dir. Luigi Berio; adapted by Luigi Berio & Massimo Fenati
narrated by Helena Bonham Carter (Channel 4, 2020)
Quentin Blake’s wordless picture book, transformed into a 21-minute Christmas film narrated by Helena Bonham Carter. The story is sad but sweet and the animation is delightfully executed, bringing the adventure to life while staying true to Blake’s drawing style and layout.
