I loved the animation in this movie. Beautiful story about an unlikely friendship between a bear and a mouse. Worthy of its Oscar nomination but probably not the win. Great movie though!

In a world where bears are not allowed to like mice, a little mouse called Célestine creates a bond of friendship with a bear called Ernest and they helped each other with mutual favours. But the laws of each one, the bears that live above and the mice that live underground forbid their contact. The authorities start to chase both and they become fugitives. Due to that, their friendship starts getting stronger.

A strong social message is hidden behind the story, a very important and touching one. The only problem is that little children might not understand it but I am sure that they can enjoy the beauty of this very well done film.

The animation is so simple and yet absolutely wonderful! It's beautifully drawn and the use pastel watercolours is great!

Ernest & Célestine is just delightful. I loved it.
