  • CineSeeds Junior Film Ernest and Celestine

Benjamin Renner, Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar / France, Belgium, Luxemburg / 2012 / 80 mins / English / Narrative

Junior Audiences aged 5 to Adult

Ernest & Celestine is a story of finding friendship where you least expect it and defending that friendship against discrimination and prejudice. Young Celestine is an artistic mouse who befriends a musical bear, Ernest. But contact between the world of mice and the world of bears is strictly forbidden. This hand-drawn, French animated film is a heart-warming tale of cross-cultural friendship that appeals to adults and young children alike.

Exempt from Classification, HRAFF recommends for ages 5+. Children under 15 years must be accompanied by an adult.
