Brave (2012)


Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Robbie Coltrane, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson, Steve Purcell, Patrick Doyle, John Ratzenberger, Peigi Barker, Sally Kinghorn, Steven Cree, Callum O'Neil


Set in the Scottish Highlands, the film tells the story of a princess named Merida (Kelly Macdonald, Peigi Barker). She defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. After consulting a witch for help, Merida accidentally transforms her mother (Emma Thompson) into a bear and is forced to undo the spell herself before it is too late.


If you are looking for a good animated film, go for a Pixar one, they won't disappoint you. Brave is visually stunning: Merida's curly hair almost looks real and fits perfectly to her rebellious personality; the colors are amazing, and the red hair always pops out; the landscapes are highly detailed.
The story, which is good although ends in trivial way, looks even more magical with the music by Patrick Doyle.


Princess Merida: Some say our destiny is tied to the land, as much a part of us as we are of it. Others say fate is woven together like a cloth, so that one's destiny intertwines with many others. It's the one thing we search for, or fight to change. Some never find it. But there are some who are led.
