Review

A classic Italian children’s book from 1945 gets an update in master illustrator Lorenzo Mattotti’s feature debut, “The Bears’ Famous Invasion of Sicily.” Beautifully drawn, with bold colors and appealing shapes, the film’s style is classic animation at its best, clear and pleasing, calculated to charm children and adults alike.


To find his long-lost son Tonio and food to survive the winter, Leonzio, the great bear king, leads his clan down from the mountains and into the world of men. After escaping terrible monsters and defeating an evil Grand Duke, the bears and men live together in peace with Leonzio as the King of Sicily. This concord is short-lived, however…

In French with English subtitles.
