Watership Down scarred generations of youngsters with its unsentimental depiction of nature red in tooth and claw, complete with rabbits getting shot, savaged by dogs, caught in snare traps, gassed by property developers and tearing each other apart. Everyone remembers the colourful piss the dog takes and the seagull squawking "PISS OFF!", which should be warning enough that this isn't Disney - not by a long shot. Although the animation can look crude by modern standards, and the all-star voice cast gives the soundtrack the feel of a radio play, Watership Down is still essential viewing for cartoon buffs and anyone looking for an intelligent, thoughtful children's film. Don't expect a happy ending either.
