Storyline

There is a world of where the Bears live above ground in their cities and the rodents live below in in their underground ones in mutual fear and hate. However, Celestine, an apprentice mouse dentist, finds at least momentary common cause with Ernest, a poor street Bear musician, that gets them rejected from both their respective worlds. In spite of this misfortune, the exiles find a growing friendship between themselves as their respective talents flower because of it. Despite this, their quietly profound challenge to the founding prejudices of their worlds cannot be ignored as the authorities track them down. When that happens, Ernest and Celestine must stand up for their love in the face of such bigotry and achieve the impossible. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

water colors
23 December 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a splendid link between use of water colors and the story. a delicate manner to use a book adaptation for remind, in a precise, gentle, lovely style importance of relationship. a film who must see it not only for its message but for the fascinating art to resurrect the childhood flavor in old fashion manner. a movie about friendship , meeting between humor and drama, a form of fable and a lesson about image of the other. a small gem because the voices, the images, the story are not more important/beautiful/realistic but only part of an unique state of soul. an isle in middle of 3D waves, it is honest and warm and nice. but, more important, it is a kind of travel out of reality pressure as a reading fairy stories book in evening. in fact, a remember about small details who defines humanity.
