Probably, all the spectators who watched cartoons before, and continue to open doors in a painted tale now long been accustomed to their good stories, fantastic explanation and an first sight stories. And that Princess these stories are in prison, and courage on their salvation is not showing the princes on a white horse, and it is much less suitable with the first glance at this role beings we are already used that is not prevent us from again and again to enjoy the new exploits and new adventures, such as the tale of Despereaux...

The project with the appropriate name has been able to accommodate fans of traditional cartoons those who wish to see the situation in detail traced the world with animated animals and insight into drawn past something new and unexpected.

In terms of classics, we will be a very beautiful picture, in which this often happens in the projects expose the first terms of representatives of the animal Kingdom, people were some ugly and crooked, but here mice (and sometimes rats, which is still in force villainous character has done more dirty and dark) so cute that you will admire. Plus the typical fairy-tale motifs, which in a human nature simply can not be may VoiceOver, telling us new unusual history. Probably continue about the neighborhood people and talkative mice did not necessary, although not they only live a fabulous population census of the project.

Overall structure the behavior of the characters will be not such stereotypical as this may seem with first sight. Especially if that look is aimed at the mouse to the name of Despereaux, because when I look at such a cute baby associations is that the mort of the "Madagascar" — remember that the baby lemur with big eyes who was always afraid of everything and constantly hugs Julian and this mouse is a real brave with the first shots of his on-screen appearance on light, and voice with voice the boy, but my husband fully complies with the brisk nature of the mouse, which is not want to learn to be afraid, and eager to perform exploits. Unexpectedly, right? And same unexpected will turn in destiny characters rat of Roscuro, who in the beginning generally seems to be the main character, but in the end will present to the audience a couple of surprises. Silent about a couple of the secondary characters and the plot of history.

Result: rendered as a true tale, with no less than a fairy-tale subtext of the story, the animated film "the tale of Despereaux" (The Tale of Despereaux, 2008) show not only the expected good story, but quite unexpected characters.

While there's hope for you — not be whose prisoner...

Watch the trailer, read reviews, and noticed the credits brilliant actor Dustin Hoffman with the aim to overcome the winter Blues I went to nearest time of the session.

The most important thing I want to say that the animators well done! Only qualitatively traced graphics somehow distract moviegoers from the writing of sms and discuss personal problems. The embodiment on the screen not a bad scenario was entrusted to Sam fellow, through which all the efforts of the authors of the story and the hard work the artists went down the drain. An impressive number of technical mistakes and"innuendo" of some scenes creates the impression that the desire to make money under the Christmas and New year forced to forget such an important moment in modern film, as post-production.

While watching "Adventures of Despero" I feel cheated. You saw the trailer, read the synopsis, but the prevailing impression is contrary to that you see on the screen. You are waiting for exciting adventures of little brave mouse Despereaux with big have Dumbo ears... but you get?

The tale begins not with the birth of the hero, we show the ship rat, Roscuro, which, contrary to all the prevailing rats the stereotype is not afraid of light, not hides from people, more — maintains a friendship with a ship's cook and loves to listen to its stories. Unwittingly, the course of the film, imbued with sympathy it is to this character. He grows, develops, experiences these feelings, its passions overcome not inherent in the rats. It history — is against a hatred of its essence because it is because it all trouble.

The cartoon consists of several plot lines interwoven not very smoothly. The second on the mouse Despereaux, who refused to be cowardly, for is its own father was sent to death of the dungeon to rats. Third on the country girl, a life goal which was to become "Princesas".

Actually, the ideas were many, to embody on the screen all this on my opinion, in the result was very messy. I would like to note the schedule and Russian dubbing.
