Michael Bond on Paddington

Official Statement about the film

22nd November 2014

Earlier this week I was invited to Studio Canal’s screening theatre in London’s Soho to view the final cut of the Paddington movie. Not knowing what to expect, it turned out to be quite simply a case of I came, I saw, I was conquered, for it was a delight from start to finish.

It is what I would call a “do you remember film” because instead of coming back down to earth immediately you leave the cinema, there are so many beautifully handled little gems scattered around you can’t wait to relive them with others of like mind. It is also a film that is engaging on many levels for in going to Paddington’s rescue the Brown family have cause to take stock of their own relationships, and in one way and another emerge all the better for doing so.  I can’t wait to see it again…
