Animation buffs will admire the artistry of this gently academic movie exploring the later lifetime of Leonardo da Vinci (an avuncular Stephen Fry). The image, directed by Pixar story artist Jim Capobianco, is a satisfying mixture of types, mixing tactile cease movement with expressive 2D hand-drawn segments (overseen by Cartoon Saloon’s Tomm Moore) that convey scientific insights to life.

Opening in Rome in 1516, The Inventor explores an eventful interval by which Leonardo incurs the wrath of the pope (Matt Berry) and is invited to France and the service of King Francis I. Leonardo’s passionate pursuit of information drives him to covert practices – his dissections are carried out on lately exhumed corpses, stolen at night time by his loyal assistants. Charming and informative as it’s, the movie could battle to interact youthful audiences accustomed to extra overt comedy of their animated motion pictures and fewer grave-robbing.
