Propelled by brilliant comic timing, this Oscar nominee about an unlikely friendship between a mouse and bear joyfully captures the kinetic possibilities of animated storytelling.
Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets lives a civilization of hardworking mice, terrified of the bears living above. When free-spirited Celestine nearly ends up as breakfast for ursine troubadour Ernest, the two form an unlikely bond. But it isn't long before their tender friendship is put to the test by their respective bear-fearing and mice-eating communities. Propelled by brilliant comic timing, this Oscar nominee joyfully leaps across genres to capture the kinetic possibilities of animated storytelling. D: Benjamin Renner, France, 2014, 120m
