My second favourite cartoon film!
15 February 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

My review for the English translation: "The Fearless Four".

Genre: Animated film with talking animals based on "The Musicians Of Bremen" by the Brothers Grimm.

I absolutely adore this film! It has lovely characters, a good story and the songs are well- written.

In this film, four animals meet each other when they escape from their miserable lives and they all love ... music! They are Buster the dog (his songs are done by James Ingrams, Buster sings really well!), Fred the donkey (his singing voice is B. B. King, good voice as well), Gwendolen the cat (she's my favourite and Oleta Adams does SO well with her voice) and Tortillini the cockerel (Zucchero does his singing voice

  • good too).




I love this film for five main reasons.

Reason 1: the songs in this are well-sung and well-written. Reason 2: the characters are lovely, my favourite is Gwendolen the cat (I even like the baddies, but not as much as the goodies). Reason 3: The animation is beautiful, the drawings and the backgrounds. Reason 4: There is an important message in this film. DO NOT TREAT ANIMALS CRUELLY!!! Reason 5: The plot and storyline are well-done, unlike many, many cartoon films' plots.

Oh, and one more thing. Could anyone tell me why this film is so hard to get in English??!! Just a question, because I wasn't able to get this movie on video for about five years.

So, watch it when you can, you won't be disappointed!
