The surprising friendship between a mouse and a fox is the subject of Denisa Grimmová and Jan Bubeníček’s joyful animated film. Selected for Annecy Film Festival.
Based on a best-selling book by Iva Procházková, this beautiful puppet animation tells the captivating story of Whitebelly the Fox and Whizzy the Mouse. These sworn enemies on earth are thrown together in animal heaven, where they must join forces to search for Whizzy's father. Along the way this unlikely pair develop an unbreakable bond. Stunning sets and incredible puppets make for a marvellous visual treat. Add to that a script that tugs at the heartstrings while also making you smile. A delightful ode to love, friendship, courage and the cycle of life, all delivered with a light touch and plenty of charm. Suitable for ages five and up.
Even Mice Belong in Heaven gains much of its appeal from its adorable character design and engaging blend of stop motion puppetry and 3D computer animation.
