Ernest & Celestine – Day 4 FFF 2014

A Mouse, a Bear and Beautiful Handmade Drawings

It’s easy to see why Ernest & Celestine was nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Film this year.

Inspired by the popular series of children’s books by Belgian author and illustrator Gavrielle Vincent, this hand drawn animation is sweet, warm and cozy. It’s the perfect movie for children–of all ages.

Conventional wisdom holds that mice and bears cannot be friends. Celestine, a brave little mouse, challenges that wisdom when she meets the bear Ernest; despite the fact that the first thing Ernest wants to do is eat her.

Filled with many visual images and creative directing by Stephane Aubier, Vincent Patar and Benjamin Renner, this film envelopes you with warmth and tenderness. The American language version features the voice talents of Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Becall, Paul Giamatti and William H. Macy. It has garnered rave reviews at film festivals throughout the world.
