Deep below snowy, cobblestone streets, tucked away in networks of winding subterranean tunnels, lives a civilization of hard-working mice, terrified of the bears who live above ground. Unlike her fellow mice, Celestine is an artist and a dreamer—and when she nearly ends up as breakfast for ursine troubadour Ernest, the two form an unlikely bond. But it isn't long before their friendship is put to the test by their respective bear-fearing and mice-eating communities. Magical and funny, Ernest & Celestine joyfully leaps across genres, propelled with brilliant comic timing, to capture the kinetic possibilities of animated storytelling. Bringing it all together is the warm on-screen chemistry between the two lead characters—a tender and playful rapport that will put a smile on your face and touch your heart.

In French with English subtitles.
