A Matter of Loaf and Death

A Matter of Loaf and Death is a 2008 British clay animated murder mystery comedy film created by Nick Park, and the fourth of his shorts and the last to date to star his characters Wallace and Gromit. Released in 2008, it is the first Wallace and Gromit project since the feature film The Curse of the WereRabbit in 2005, and the first short since A Close Shave in 1995.

Baker Bob is bludgeoned to death with his own rolling pin by an unseen assailant he recognizes while baking a cake he is the latest of twelve bakers to be killed. Meanwhile, Wallace and Gromit are running a Dough to Door delivery service from their bakery Top Bun. On one such delivery, the duo save Piella Bakewell, a former pinup girl mascot for the BakeOLite bread company, and her miniature poodle, Fluffles, when the brakes on her bike appear to fail. They drive alongside so Wallace can attempt to use pastries to stop, but they careen into a zoo and barely escape being eaten by a crocodile. Gromit tests the bicycle brakes and becomes suspicious on learning that the brakes work perfectly fine, but Wallace becomes smitten with Piella.A whirlwind romance ensues, during which it is also shown that the nervous Fluffles is treated rather shabbily by Piella. During the romance, Piella gives the entire house a womans touch, decorating the whole house with dog romance pictures and flowers including Gromits room. In addition, she pushes Gromit out of his relationship with Wallace and spends more and more time with him. Angry that Piella has interrupted his relationship with Wallace and modified the house, Gromit is about to start destroying the decorations when Fluffles stops by his room. Fluffles and Gromit share a sensitive moment after she timidly returns Gromits possessions, which have been discarded by Piella. However, when Piella leaves her purse at the house, Wallace decides to return it, but it is raining outside. Not wanting to get wet, he insists that Gromit return it instead. Upon arriving at Piellas affluent mansion, Gromit discovers several dressmakers dummies in her bedroom, each wearing a bakers hat and apron. In a book, Gromit discovers photographs of Piella with the murdered bakers. To his horror, Gromit discovers Piella is the Cereal Killer as he discovers a picture with Wallace as her apparent intended thirteenth victim, thus completing a bakers dozen. Gr
