❝ And I know now that I need to mend my mistake, and mend our bond. ❞

I think Brave is so under-estimated. Here is a strong female protagonist, who undergoes a trial which changes her for good. She goes from selfish, immature and rash, wanting to do things her own way, regardless of consequences, to accepting to change, and selfless and understanding. It’s done so well, in my opinion. People assume that the title Brave, just means that she was brave, and courageous. But no, she was brave enough to accept change, her own change and see the errors of her ways. 

Many times, when characters change, whether it be mindset or personality, they don’t exactly reflect back at their negative behaviors. Merida does that. She looks back at her character from the beginning of the movie and she realizes her flaws. God, Merida is one of the most beautiful characters ever. 

Admitting you are wrong and trying to fix it is one of the bravest things you can do.

So if we wanted to watch some French animation, what films would you suggest?

the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.

A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.

Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.

the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.

The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.

Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.

Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.

A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.

The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.  

Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.

But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well. 

Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.

Reblogging over here. French animation tends to do better with diversity than Disney does, hahaha.

I so want to read them. :)

And I wonder what Nishan’s Love Life could be about?  

Nishan’s fan fiction: Wes took hold of Julian’s hand and looked into the tall boy’s beautiful brown eyes, his heart fluttered and flipped in his chest. He had known Julian for many years, and in those years he had fallen in love with the tall jock. Julian looked confused, why had one of his best friends grabbed his hand? Why did he suddenly feel the overwhelming urge to hold Wes in his arms and kiss him.

-Wes and Julian find this and read it in real life-

Wes:…..

Julian:….

Wes: NISHAN I WILL MURDER YOU
