Ernest & Celestine Directed by Benjamin Renner, Stephane Aubier, Vincent Patar, 2014
Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding tunnels, lives a civilization of hardworking mice, terrified of the bears who live above ground. Unlike her fellow mice, Celestine is an artist and a dreamer – and when she nearly ends up as breakfast for Ernest, a grizzly poet, the two form an unlikely bond. But it isn’t long before their friendship is put on trial by their respective bear-fearing and mice-eating communities. Gorgeous animation, wonderful storytelling and brilliant comic timing combine with the on-screen chemistry between the two leads that will put a smile on your face and make your heart glow.
