Ernest & Celestine (2012/13)

The story of an unlikely friendship between a bear, Ernest, and a young mouse named Celestine. [imdb]

Nominated for 1 Oscar:
Best Animated Feature

This category always surprises us with a small foreign animation film that somehow manages to sneak through. Sometimes such choices are really boring (Chico & Rita, Secret of Kells), other times they're a nice surprise, like this one. 

The film looks beautiful because it goes back to the classical way of animation (nothing computer generated or whatever it's called). It has a nice, simple story, a beautiful score and I liked that it felt very unfussy.

My rating for the film: 8/10.
