Synopsis

Fievel is a Russian mouse who, along with the rest of his family, flees his homeland and persecution by cats for a new life in America. However, on their journey a violent storm at sea separates young Fievel and the rest of the Mousekewitzs - so when he eventually reaches his new country, he must embark on an epic quest to find them. This animated family adventure is as cute as they come - but director Don Bluth also stays the right side of sentimentality, and the American immigrant experience (which the film is really about) is dealt with smartly and sensitively.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
