An American Tail (1986)


While emigrating to the United States, a young Russian mouse gets separated from his family and must relocate them while trying to survive in a new country. (IMDb)
Moves much too quickly throughout (Fievel and Tiger’s friendship duet seems a little premature), which makes it difficult to appreciate any of the secondary characters in particular, but each scene, however brief, communicates effectively an aspect of the surprisingly serious immigration (see Fievel’s separation) turned searching for family (see the moments of dramatic irony in New York) plot. Nice animation and a few fun songs (“There’s No Cats in America” is a highlight) round out the film.
6.5/10 (Alright)
