Paddington – charms.

by Toby Woollaston

It’s difficult not to like Paddington. It’s inviting palette and enchanting comic timing, (similar to that of Jeunet’s equally alluring Amélie) … well, it was just too irresistible, and so to “Darkest Peru” and back I went smiling all the way. Paddington treads lightly on issues of displacement concluding that “in London everyone is different, and that means anyone can fit in”. This sentiment struck a chord with me, and regardless of its accuracy, I found Paddington to be a hilarious and charming delight.
