The Wa­ter Ba­bies

Empire (UK) - - THE VIEWING GUIDE - PDS

1978 / FROM MARCH 21 / CERT. U

If you thought Bed­knobs And Broom­sticks was too re­al­is­tic, try this ’70s cu­rio, in which a chim­ney sweep falls into an an­i­mated un­der­wa­ter world. James Ma­son voices a mus­ta­chioed shark, the songs are jaunty and its young hero is more ebul­lient than Oliver Twist. Rough-hewn com­pared to Ghi­bli or Pixar, but not with­out trippy charm.
