This past year, with moviegoers so enamored by huge animated mega-hits like "Frozen" and "Monsters University", a lot of the smaller, more independent films, haven't been getting as much recognition. One that immediately comes to mind is "Ernest & Celestine", originally a French movie that after so much success at various film festivals, was converted into English. With a star-studded voice cast including Forest Whitaker, Paul Giamatti and William H. Macy on board, it received a nomination for Best Animated Feature at this year's Oscars, and landed a considerable release throughout the U.S.

This hand-drawn comedy follows the unlikely, and forbidden, friendship between a young mouse named Celestine and a lovable bear named Ernest. Both confined to their respective worlds, with bears living above ground and mouses living under, they find solace when they are together. But as their love for each other grows, so does the disdain from their peers, and they must find a way to break from what is considered normal, and live the life they want to live, side by side.

With stunning animation, and refreshing performances by the whole cast, I was pleasantly surprised by this film. Rated PG for scary moments, "Ernest & Celestine" was a delightfully funny movie that people of all ages can enjoy.

So far, my favorite film of 2014 (2012 Original French Release). I want to try and stay away from using terms such as "Joyous" and "Endearing", but at its core, that's what Ernest & Celestine is, and where it shines. It's been many years since a film has made me feel a level of child like glee such as E & C was able to create with its superb watercolor art style and simplistic physical gags (each one executed flawlessly), not to mention touch on the subjects of family, friendship, and prejudice while staying sweet, effortless, and entirely non-malicious. Fantastic family fare, for young and old, children and parents. Do your self a favor and purchase this film. You won't be sorry.

I was late in getting the Bluray Combo pack of this French animated film (with a soundtrack in English by an A-list of actors), so I’m a little late. I see that – as I post this – there are already 19 reviews posted. But I note than many of them are from those that saw the film in the theater or on Amazon Instant. None of these – to my knowledge – discuss the bonus content and so I’ll concentrate on that area.

I always also like to point out that Amazon has a policy of grouping ALL reviews of ALL formats (theatrical, streaming, DVD and BD) of a film and posts them on each of the formats. So I always recommend that readers should first short by “newest first” and then look to see the format the reviewer is basing their review on. The Streaming versions (and of course the theater versions) do not include the “bonus features”

With that said, I'll move on. This is one of at least seven animated films that I’ve seen (and I removed most) from the GKIDS studio. And – while “Chico & Rita” is still my favorite – this one comes in second. The story is great for both adults and children. This is not the animation of Disney (whether “Bambi” or “Frozen”) or Pixar. As you learn from one of the bonus features, the backgrounds were all done with watercolors on paper and the characters are all CGI generated. This gives the screen image a “story book” quality.

As I noted above, the basic film (if you don’t change the “set up” options) is in English with the voices of Forest Whitaker, William H. Macy, Paul Giamati and screen legend Lauren Bacall (!), plus others I didn’t recognize. The film runs a brief 80 minutes.

This movie stole my heart!

I randomly found a trailer during some channel surfing, and on a whim, decided to pre-order (I'm a sucker for independent animation). So glad I did!

It's a story about a friendship between the most unlikely couple--an orphaned mouse and down on his luck bear. Together they break some laws and become fugitives from their respective towns. While on the run, they overcome social barriers and cultural stereotypes between their two societies to become the closest of friends.

The water color animation give an endearing and childlike effect--almost as if your reading one of your favorite childhood bedtime stories--and it's a highly unique art style (addicting to watch).

Just a note, there are some themes of theft, so be prepared to have a conversation with any little ones that might watch!

When I was a young boy, about seven years old, I remember standing at the top of the stairs in our old home in New England, staring down at this giant rat the size of a medium sized stuffed animal. My face was probably laced with sheer terror, as the thing turned at hissed and bore those sharp front teeth, and my dad raced to grab a broom or something and then it was gone, almost as quickly as it came. It squeezed it’s giant body into a hole the size of a quarter in the wall and disappeared.

I never saw it again, but I’ll never forget it either.

But, mice are cute; right?

There is something jovially precious about ‘Ernest & Celestine’, a cute little film about two lonely critters uniting as one. I have to say, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the film had its fair share of supporters who raved it quite a bit and were overjoyed when it received that Oscar nomination, and I have to admit that it was visually appealing to me in a way I hadn’t expected either.

Sometimes you just need that nostalgic beauty of hand drawn images.

‘Ernest & Celestine’ tells the story of an orphan named Celestine, a cute little mouse who has been brainwashed to loathe bears. She is an inquisitive little thing though, and she bucks common trend of bear hating to actually fantasize about befriending them. At night, little Celestine is sent off along with her orphan friends to steal bear teeth because their teeth are falling out and they need their teeth to survive (and nothing is quite as strong as a bear tooth). One night, after a VERY close call, Celestine finds herself in the clutches of a lonely (and hungry) bear named Ernest.
