The Mousekewitz's

You dont notice how clever this film is untill you watch it as an adult. On a childish level..ooh look mice are wearing hats; but on an adult level it is a sophisticated representation of cultural conflict, racism and immigration.

A family of Russian mice emmigrate to America, fleeing cats. Labouring under the misconception that;

'There are no cats in America, and the streets are paved with cheese'

Unfortunately Fievel becomes separated from his family on the way; and finds himself alone in New York; surrounded by the cats they tried to leave. I wont go as far to say its a direct mirror of the flee from facism...but there are certainly many similarities.

Not only is this a fun and imaginative film, well animated and reeking of Don Bluth's genius; it is very well written and makes you think.

If you're not impressed by its 'message' a set of enjoyable and memorable songs throughout, will brighten your day.
