Storyline

The Lion and the Mouse looks back at the birth of America and the deciding conflicts and characters that have shaped the last four centuries as the intriguing relationship between Bermuda and America has evolved. Caught up in a succession of wars between the continents Bermuda found itself on both sides of the mid Atlantic gauntlet. Isolated by location, the island embodied the necessary reinvention and adaptability, to prosper in a changing Atlantic world, from saving the colonialists of Jamestown, robbing the British armory on the island and smuggling all of the gunpowder to George Washington's revolutionary army, to launching the fleet that burned Washington in the War of 1812, running the Union blockade in the Civil War, or on the other side, as soldiers fighting for "Glory."

Saved by the mouse!
11 April 2009 | by (Santa Barbara, USA) – See all my reviews

To understand politics one has to understand and listen to the stories of History. In there lays the truth about where we come from, who were and where we will end up. Such is the beautiful canvas of multiple social, cultural and political realities crafted in this perfect enlightening movie by Lucinda Spurling: "The Lion and the Mouse". And I want to put a capital M to Mouse because this film is the deep realization of the capital role played by Bermuda in maintaining through the ages the thin geopolitical and economical balance between two continents: The "old" Europe and the "New World" aka The United States of America. The Lion and the Mouse is a tale of courage, of endurance, of strength showing us we just can never give up our Dreams and that no matter what is the challenge, Life is all about over- coming, over-defeating any and all of your inner and outer Fears. As one we stand, as one we save, as One we ARE. We are all a Lion and a Mouse, a lost Angel and a God, Light and Night, all reaching for the infinity of our Destiny.
