Celestine and Ernest live in a wispily painted watercolor world that manages to be squealingly adorable but sharp. Underground, the sophisticated mouse society where Celestine lives is founded on two principles: that gnawing has been their greatest survival skill, so being a dentist is their highest calling, and that bears are big and bad and will kill you. Celestine is an artist who doesn't think bears can possibly be that bad. Ernest & Celestine is a French animated animal allegory about mob injustice, about being on trial for who someone thinks you are rather than what you've done. It's sort of about a mouse, a bear, and Trayvon Martin.
