“Brave”

When I wrote my four sentence review of “Once”, I said that it would be the only time I write a four sentence review in English. Well, I guess this is the time for me to show that I am “brave” enough to admit I was wrong…😉

Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald), a young, adventurous, Scottish princess has only one problem, at least according to her mother Queen Elinor (voiced by Emma Thompson): she’s a tomboy! Queen Elinor is making every effort possible to change Merida’s ways and prepare her for her arranged mariage to a yet-to-be-determined-prince of a neighbouring kingdom, to the princess’ chagrin. Ostensibly annoyed by her mother, Merida seeks the help of a witch to make her mother change her mind about the marriage; let’s just say that things do not go as planned, leading the princess and Queen on some unexpected adventures! A pleasant return to form for Pixar, after the disastrous “Cars 2”, the unexpected plot twist, the chemistry and animated voice acting of Macdonald and Thompson, but mostly the refreshingly strong female role model that is Merida, are the biggest strengths of this entertaining and sharp flick… need I state the obvious: RENT IT!

  2. Ben non je ne l’ai pas loué, mais, thanks to CBC, j’ai pu finalement le voir.
    Une belle petite histoire, drôle et attachante, qui me rappelle curieusement “freaky friday”.
    Je suis surtout fascinée par l’apparition des feux follets. Créatures mythiques dont la forme change un peu d’un pays à l’autre, mais dont l’intention est presque toujours d’égarer les voyageurs et de les mener à leur perte. Il semble que Disney n’est pas lu les mêmes légendes que moi.

      Je n’avais pas songé à “Freaky Friday”… mais je suis d’accord qu’il y a des similarités.
      Disney est bien connu pour mijoter les histoires avec leur propre sauce, au moins il n’ont pas complètement transformé le rôle des feux follets.

      Certainement un des tes commentaires les plus pertinents des dernières semaines… je le compterais quasiment pour deux… but I won’t!😛
