Don Bluth is another animator I love along side Max Fleischer and Hayao Miyazaki, and this film An American Tail is one of my favorites from him; It is a childhood favorite.A reason I like mice not rats is that well...they are the "goodbeasts" from my books like the "Redwall" series by Brian Jacques my favorite author and also "Mrs Frisby and The Rats of NIMH" by Robert C. O'Brien, which was maded into another film by Don; well those rats are good so I could accept that. I love the romantic scene with Tony and Bridget when they first meet that is , and <more>
besides I love Bridget,Tony,Tanya and Fievel himself.
This is perhaps the greatest animation event to ever bestow its head upon our weak mortal minds. What it says of American Society fills the gap between post-modernism and standard traditional story telling. Indeed, the mouse represents the ascent of the common man, the cats are the tyranny of injustices in American society. Tiger though, represents how that sometimes in such dire consequences, an injustice can some how turn in favor of the people, inciting, might one say, revolution? Indeed, An American Tail is a call to arms that we all must heed one day or another, whether we like it or <more>
not. Not since Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal has this world seen such an avid display of avant garde film making. Bravo Fieval, bravo.
An American Tail: This was a great animated movie. This was made in 1986. Don Bluth also created The Land Before Time which is another fantastic classic animated movie. I give an american tail a great score 10 out of 10, because the movie rocks.
Excellent movie for all ages that will warm your heart! (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
In my opinion, this is an excellent movie for all ages that will warm your heart! When Fievel voice of Phillip Glasser got lost, I wanted to cry. Although some of the characters were diabolical, I liked everybody. Well, it's hard to say which character was my favorite. The music was good, especially "Somewhere Out There, "A Duo," and "No Cats In America." In addition to the music being good everyone was cast perfectly, and the direction was flawless. In conclusion, I highly recommend this very touching movie for all ages that will warm your heart to anyone who <more>
hasn't seen it. You're in for a real treat and a good time, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with someone close to you, and watch it.
Another animated classic by Don Bluth (by Rectangular_businessman)
When I was a child, my sister and I would love watching all sorts of animated films. One of these films was An American Tail. My interest in the film increased after watching All Dogs go to Heaven. I only remembered bits and pieces of it, so I finally got the opportunity to watch the film, and it was definitely worth seeing.Frustrated by all the cats in Russia, the Mousekewitz family to America, where there are supposedly no cats. During the voyage, Fieval Mousekewitz Phillip Glasser wanders off and is separated from the rest of the family. Fortunately, he lands in New York, where he is <more>
determined to find his parents. Fieval journeys through New York, meeting many friends, who include a French pigeon named Henri Christopher Plummer , a young mouse named Tony Toponi Pat Musick , and a large alcoholic mouse named Honest John Neil Ross . He also discovers that there are cats in America, one of them being a scam artist named Warren T. Rat John Finnegan .There are several satirical moments in the film, such as the depiction of cats in Italy as mobsters, the depiction of cats in Russia as Cossacks, etc. But the film, although enjoyable, has some minor flaws. The first and the most obvious flaw is that the film may get too depressing for children, and the other flaw is that the film is that the voices may get a bit annoying, but it never gets even remotely unbearable.Overall, An American Tail was an excellent animated film, and I highly recommend
In my opinion underrated, but I guess this is one of my childhood favorites. I watched this over and over again and still love it. Bluth's Disney-like and that's not a bad thing IMO animations are a real treat, but a bit darker. Not every song is as good as the main song; "Somewhere out there" but they're still enjoyable. The story, perhaps inspired by Art Spiegelman's MAUS, about a Russian Jewish mouse family that seek new live in New York, is really moving. A must-watch for every kid and adult.
Fievel the Turntablism Progenetor. (by bradleyadita)
**SPOILERS**I saw AAT when i was young and recently watched it again. It was a favorite then and I still got a kick out of it and will probably watch it again. The animation and backgrounds work quite well, dim grimy dull, which make the few moments when things shine the fireworks, the bottle floating, the waterfall and lighting when Fievel and the family are reunited all the more powerful, overall the color is great. Its good to see that IMDb is truly an International Database, and i love that i can read reviews by people who've identified that they are from such places as Pakistan, <more>
Jamaica, Argentina, and beyond. As an American Jew myself, the connections to this film are quite obvious and my more recent viewing really gave me a sense of the contribution Steven Spielberg has made in my life, and many other lives about Jews / Americans. I enjoy the opportunity to view other's readings of the film, to see how the messages in the film are viewed by people outside America.The film has some obvious political undertones that a child will not necessarily pick up. This is a pretty cool thing / kinda sesame street like / a subtle education. While Fievel's family is Jewish, not all the mice in the film are, as we meet other immigrant mice who are carrying crosses, etc. What the mice have in common is immigrant status as well as being under the oppression of "the Cats" don't say it too loud . Who are the cats? Are the cats just the bullies in any given situation? While the Russian cats that drove Fievel's family from their home in Russia mirrored the Pogroms / Nazis / Jewish oppressors, Who were the oppressors on the American soil? is it a direct reflection to a group of oppressors in American in the late 19th century? In light of current political situations this movie could have many implications / readings. Does America still seem to have that silver lining? Are people round the world still singing their own equivalents to "The Are No Cats In America?" Contrast Fievel with Mickey "Mouse" himself, a wonderful comparison. Fievel is almost a real person whereas Mickey is more cartoony. Fievel is a child mouse. As children ourselves we can put ourselves in his shoes more easily, which is why this is a children's movie his fascination with "the fish," and always asking questions, his curiosity, which gets him in trouble, and his ability to dream and somehow stumble through it all still surviving if not drunk and woosie, green-ish from it all. a little detail i enjoy is how, invariably he always winds up in some sort of "bubble" the soap bubble, the bottle, the bed in watertower, etc.. where ever he goes he is protected in a bubble home, he is magically kept in this safety bubble, the bubble of being the main character in a major motion picture, of being the focus for millions of children. ... another trait of Fievel's is his amazing ability to run up a stream of falling debris to which he uses quite often to escape sticky situations. The collective effort of the mice to build the Mouse of Minsk is wonderful and the final product is huge and beautifully grotesque and awesome. I love how it rolls out, bursting through the door of the boarded up "museum of the weird." There is something in this, how the solution to the cat problem lies in the pieces of this abandoned museum. How all sorts of knicknacks, falderall, and whatnotknots could be gumbo-ed together to create this Mouse of Minsk monster an analogy / metaphor to the very real-life America itself. There are also some extremely funny moments in this film, like when Tony Toponi, Fievels friend and escapee from the sewing sweatshop first sees and falls head over heels in love with Bridget our Irish rabble rouser . She is all soapbox-ish and politics and talking about getting rid of the cats, and Tony freezes stiff and falls off the roof... this falling off the roof i have watched, re-wound and watch again about 10,000 times i don't know why but it just cracks me up the way his body remains stiff and sort of just slides / pops off the roof, and then how he is trying to repeat "cats" when Bridget sees him and he is the only mouse who has not yet run away, she is happy that they at least have each other, and then these hippy flowers come out of nowhere and it's like a sixties love-in all of a sudden.Also the underground imagery in the sewer is quite accurate and really beautiful. accurate in the sense of feeling one gets when crawling through a storm drain, which is the equivalent to the film, since it was managing water A sewer manages human waste and waste water, while the storm drain system manages excess Weather water... .... just beautiful yeah in that grimy sooty way Another fun moment is when Fievel thinks he hears his father playing his violin, but it is only a gramophone, in which he climbs into, and then when looking into the void gets sad again because he doesn't see his father, then the lady changes the recording which is now this SUDDEN LOUD American boisterous BIG BAND song POMPING great American pride which causes Fievel to fall down into the void of the Phonography and is spat out onto the music which speeds up and slows down which is of course how Hip-Hop turntablism was invented - which is also a metaphor for the very real America, the "melting pot" or rather the mixing, scratching, rapping pot. ... a great little scene, which exemplifies how the mice have to deal with the human environment as well. The mice are real to the humans in the movie, they see them as real live mice, something to throw a shoe at somehow us in the audience are different, we are able to see the world at their level, to be able to hear their story. Overall a fun classic movie which has some important messages about collective power, what freedom is and means from an American perspective. An Adventuresome "musical" with wonderful songs and sad songs. A little piece of my childhood as a young American... "America, what a place!" 8/10
has a charm that is totally undeniable and appealing for most children (by Quinoa1984)
As a kid I watched this film many times, as it had four key things that it had and still has going for it: 1 a story that does not skim on really putting peril for the characters the separation sequence on the ship is absorbing, but also devastating if you're heavily invested in Fievel and his father ; 2 good songs that aren't too preachy, and with enough emotional tug to be Disney-like, but unusual or unexpected in some of the styles of; 3 how the characters are animated- I love the variety given to the different mice and cats and how the humans are wisely left in the shadows <more>
or with just a hand or a foot; and 4 the comedy in the film balances without a fault with the comedy. In terms of subject matter, there is a lot of historical background information that kids today may have no care for, but it doesn't matter; Fievel and his family could be any immigrant mouse family, and really the core of the story the importance of family and love is what carries it through. And because of this balance between comedy and drama- there are allusions to the Pogroms in Russia, the struggles of the immigrant working life in 19th century America, and racism, but voices like Madeline Kahn and Dom DeLouise are featured in key roles- it may throw some in the audience off, or be too much on a first viewing. It may not even be a 'great' film. Yet as expertly Don Bluth directed hand-drawn animation, with a big heart and a bright, and dark, story of mice versus cats, it has a wonderment about it that should be appealing almost twenty years down the line. It's certainly better than the sequel, which is all slapstick as opposed to being comic-tragic, which also has an appeal for some older kids and adults.
Don Bluth Has Done It Again, After Seeing "The Secret Of NIMH" One Of My 2 Favorite Animated Movies I Now Have To Make Room For "An American Tail" ... The Story Of Immigration Seen Through The Eyes Of A Young Mouse Is The Story Of All Our Fore-Fathers ... The Story Is A Wonderful Imagery Of "Life, Liberty And The Pursuit Of Happiness" ... Fievel Is Mesmerized With Wonderful Stories Of His New Home America Only To Find Danger, Loneliness, Fear, Hunger And Desperation ... Yet Fievel Has Faith And A Never Erring Sense Of Belonging To Something Much Much Bigger <more>
Than Himself ... In The End He Finds That Yes The Streets Are Paved With Cheese Gold In America Only When We Realize That The Cheese Gold We Came Looking For Is In The Form Of Family, Friends, Opportunity And Happiness ... Dom Deluse Also Does A Voice In The Secret Of NIMH And Madeline Kahn As Well As Christopher Plummer Bring Believability To The Cartoon Characters They Portray ... The Simple Animation Is A Don Bluth Trademark, Leaving The Wonder To The Story Telling And Not The Animation ... I Am Flabbergasted That I Waited This Long To See This Movie And I Am Glad I Didn't Miss Out ... I Will Be Giving Fievel Another Shot At Bringing A Tear To My Eyes Did I Really Say That ...
