The hell, /co/, why didn't you tell me about this awesome movie? Every single minute is either cute, awesome, or both, so why the hell don't we talk more about it? Is it the Lackaidaisy/Nedroid effect?
Also, what exactly is the relationship between the two? Because I can't help think of the word courtship and then get to the word pedophilia, then wonder what the fuck is wrong with me because the movie is so great.
We talked about this movie. I heard about it from /co/ and talked about it here. But /co/ likes to complain and there isn't much to complain about this movie.
Also about their relationship. I would call it love. Despite what 4chan might make us think there are many kinds of love but lust isn't one of them.
Well, sex didn't even enter into my question, it was mostly one regarding how exactly is it they see each other. Because at times you really do get the feeling it's a couples relationship, but not always. Like, it's very clear they care very, very deeply about each other, but in what fashion, exactly?
And yes, there's little to nothing to protest. It's an incredibly well-made, well-paced, and well animated movie that I really wish I had seen sooner.
>Also, what exactly is the relationship between the two?
Father-daughter. The books show Ernest in that role more than the film does since the latter is more about how he he's basically being reformed by her.
France is currently the country with the best animated works. Before it used to be Japan, but then it became Otaku/Moe pandering BS, and before that it used to be America but then producers got greedy and saw animation as just a means to farm money from kids and families.
It's a pity France seems to roll a dice and decide one particular part of their animations will have something which will detract from it's overrall quality.
But yeah, it's pretty much the place were my favourite animation has been coming from the last few years. Hopefully the 3D bug won't spread and they'll cut that shit out.
>Every single minute is either cute, awesome, or both, so why the hell don't we talk more about it? Is it the Lackaidaisy/Nedroid effect?
Something like that. It's a good movie so there isn't much to talk about it, and it isn't mainstream enough.
>The hell, /co/, why didn't you tell me about this awesome movie?
I actually learned about this movie in a good animation thread. Those threads also make me watch a lot of 30's shorts and old anime.
no, that's a perversion of moe
moe is one of those things where the minute it was named, it was doomed. but that doesn't mean it wasn't cool before it was cool
for example, thinking-shit-was-cool-before-it-was-cool. that was cool, before it was cool.
All Celestine did was make me want to find a girl with her mannerism and personality to fuck. Also, it's all right for a movie, I think it would have been better if it had more action.
When something here is generally considered to be good then there won't be much discussion.
I learned of this movie through /co/ and it's hella cute. It's apparently by the same company that made Panique Au Village which I recommend though its pure comedy with absurdist humor.
I haven't read the French books but I assume in them that Ernest is more of a father figure who adopted Celestine. I interpreted their relation in this movie more like best friends with an age gap. You can love someone without having a lust for them
>Panique Au Village
That show and the movie are just fantastic.
I literally only found out about this movie through a random thread on /co/. It's fucking adorable though. I love movies where a big burly thing takes care of a small cute thing.
Are the original books any good? Or is it just a kids picture book or something?
I got that impression from the film too actually and I never read any of the books.
He's like a deadbeat who ended up with a new daughter through total happenstance and somehow rose to the occasion in a total bumbly sort of way.
I want an Ernest in my life more than a waifu. ;-;
We discussed it a lot when it came out, sorry that you wasn't there to see those threads. What fuck more do you want? A 24/7 general about this movie to prove that we liked it? The shit we do talk about more or less is still has stuff coming out.
What people here should ashamed of is that the European /co/mrades rarely talk about french animation outside of shit that remind them of anime (Wakfu, Ladybug) or old french/japan cartoons.
The books are somewhat hard to find at a decent price range but he's definitely more of a father to her in them.
From what I can tell, the film is an origin story that was never told in the books; they just started with them already together and Ernest as her dad.
This film is perfect for getting relaxed and comfy while watching
I wish I could hug both of them ;_;l
I only know about this movie because I was trying to find something to watch on Amazon Prime, and my girlfriend wanted something lighthearted. I expected some cutesy bullshit.
By the end I wanted to protect the fuck out of that mouse.
>By the end I wanted to protect the fuck out of that mouse.
The mouse that convinced a bear not to eat her and help her commit a heist to prove her worth to her community? The mouse that nourished the bear back to health? The mouse that saved the judge from a fire? That mouse?
>why didn't you tell me about _____
I'm so tired of seeing this. Why do people insist on blaming others when they were the ones living under a rock?
I've actually brought this movie up in the odd thread or so when talking about good animation for kids, don't know where you've been.
Nice to see a thread on this, though. I freaking love this movie, it's so comfy.
There will be a sequel, it's an animated series in
3D, but with the same rendering than the movie.I work in the studio who's making it, and the production will begin in february/march.
Dropped so hard I created a singularity, went back to the pass, and make Ernest eat Celestine to prevent this travesty.
>why does animation suck nowadays
>it's missing a bunch of frames
You missed the threads that were happening last year. We spent much time discussing the dub and when the English dub was going to arrive.
ProTip: If you haven't listened to the English Dub (and you are natively English), you should definitely do that. It's at least equal to the original French dub, and in my opinion, notably better. The voices emote and hit harder (funnier/sadder/happier), especially at the end.
>Also, what exactly is the relationship between the two?
Normally I'm all for rule34 being spread but honestly, they remind me more of an Uncle and early teenager/tween niece. I can understand the vibe you might get from the courtship thing, but... yeah, it just doesn't feel right the more you think that way, does it?
Goddamn Ernest, goddamn Celestine, ruining a family business!
yeah i love this movie too, made few threads during summer, no one cared.
Enjoy it lad, i was watching it religiously for two weeks.
I do wish bears have insurance, because otherwise they're fucked.
Also, while I didn't need the to decapitate them, I personally didn't like they got NO punishment at the end. Doing a bad thing for good reasons isn't enough to clear up the fact you did a bad thing and need to, at least, receive some reprimand and punishment for it.
France does have some great animation, but I think the English dub is far superior to the French one for this movie.
Having seen how they can render 3d into pseudo-2D with their series "The Grand Grand Holiday" I'm not overly worried. It could be good.
Funny thing about the lust comments,
the director said that he had plans to give Ernest an Oedipus complex, no joke
I like this word but this movie really showed how unclear animation method naming is.
Is there a term for symbol animation? Or a widely used term for digital hand drawn?
No clue. Considering even the term "traditional animation" actually involves dozens of completely lookimg animation techniques, I think umbrella terms for this sort of stuff are counter productive.
>a widely used term for digital hand drawn?
That's what tradigital means in the broadest sense.
Using traditional cel (frame-by-frame) techniques with new technology.
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron was also tradigital.
So is, say, a lot of OPM for an /a/ example.
Shoot, forgot pic.
This was all animated with computers, but was still hand drawn.
>Why didn't you tell me about this awesome movie?
At the very least, I know I made a thread about it at least once, and I know before that /co/ had been talking about this for years.
It was great.
Tfw you no longer can be the adult single guy who is cool with kids without someone thinking that you are gonna diddle them.
What's wrong? Ernest was cold so she wanted to give him hot kisses to warm him up
It is France, kissing is literally like saying hello!
Would you be a nude model for Celestine's art if she asked you to?
>Corsica dose the most kissing
I need more pictures of Celestine being cute
How about Ernest and Celestine cosplaying Vanellope and Ralph?
Did anyone ever become inspired to draw from this film?
Strange. Each source gives different numbers. None of them reach close to the budget though.
Domestic: $262,075 5.2%
+ Foreign: $4,813,287 94.8%
= Worldwide: $5,075,362
$71,442 (USA) (16 March 2014)
Domestic Box Office $292,562 Details
International Box Office $9,083,882 Details
Worldwide Box Office $9,376,444
It is another good animation with terrible box office like Cats Don't Dance. It is sad how awesome movies like these flop while things like Minions make millions by milking on previews movies and publicity.
ok i'm at my pc
looks like some pics have been posted already but i have some more that we made
also character sheet in case people feel inspired to draw more
>How about Ernest and Celestine cosplaying Vanellope and Ralph?
/co/ has talked about the movie, it's the only reason I watched it. It's nice and cute though and I certainly enjoyed watching it.
Don't really have much to watch at the moment, wish there was something slightly obscure like this or Song of the Sea that I could just tune in to
Do not recall deleted scenes, but it does have a number of good extras including a lengthy making of documentary in French. And the movie does have a very nice English dub as well, so well worth the purchase.
To do what? More smut?
Fanart of good movies
especially with animal charactersis made constantly.
You just have to take a deep breath, brace yourself, and go check DA and tümbler.
^new fan animation
This wonderful thing comes from tümbler.
I'm glad that didn't make it into the end result.
What's with french people and making movies involving really young girls with less than ideal older men, with more than a few implying they will eventually fuck? Leon the professional being the epitomy of it with the firl actively seeking the D.
It's a pity flash communities have died. Say what you will of the animation, many were better than quite a lot of things dreamwork (and nowadays, pixar) have done.
Also, is it inly me or the captcha has a cactus fixation?
>Also, is it inly me or the captcha has a cactus fixation?
it's more of an overly worrisome street sign obsession on my end
fuck that fucking shit, wish there were a way to revert it back to legacy captcha on clover somehow
it's from the books you fucking tard
just because some dumb bitch posts it to her tumblr doesnt make it from tumblr
