Overall, a very warm and touching tale on the topic of prejudice. There were a couple of loose ends that I would have liked to see tied up at the end, but for the sake of the message, it wasn't quite necessary to do so.

This was such a well done movie that was enjoyable for adults as well as a 7 year old grandson. The story was touching and sweet, yet had a lesson on understanding and tolerance. The art was superb and the entire movie was so excellent. I think we'll have to see this again!

Unexpectedly delightful and very well-made little animation. To call it heartwarming is an understatement. The characters tugged at my heart tenderly and I went back and forth between laughing and saying awwwww, occasionally finding myself worried out of sentiment for the two main characters, while enjoying it enough to rewatch it a few days after first seeing it. I highly recommend it for families with young children and for soft-hearted adults, too. It is miles above most kids' programs/movies, both in the quality of the animation and acting and most critically in the storyline.

An ill-tempered bear and stubborn little mouse go against societal conventions and form a friendship in this beautifully animated tale based on a series of children’s books. From the charming watercolour artwork to the hilarious comedic incidentals this one is a true winner. The voices are perfect too with Lambert Wilson breathing life into the gravelly growly Ernest while Pauline Brunner plays the squeakily defiant Célestine with tiny perfection. Of course there’s a lesson or two about tolerance and celebrating our differences, but directors Benjamin Renner et al make it a soft sermon. A real Saturday matinee treat!

Wow. This was really good! Watercolor style animation but the expressions on face so full of life!

My French is too weak to watch this without English subtitles, and It looks like this dvd doesn't come with English subtitles.

Since it's been nominated for an Oscar I'm sure a new English text and/or translated version will be coming out soon enough...I'll wait 'til then
