Hélène Giraud and Thomas Szabo wrote and directed this highly unusual
French film. Although the subject matter is rather familiar (with prior
CGI films like Antz and A Bug's Life), the style and content is like
nothing I've ever seen beforeand this is, by far the biggest strength
of this cute little film. However, I must warn you that initially I
hated this film, as the beginning was loud and not especially
enjoyable but keep watching
it will grow on you!
When the film begins, it begins with a normal setting out in the
countryside. This is not CGI but real film. However, throughout the
film the two are integrated together. When you see the world from a
human's point of you, it's standard film. When it goes to the micro
world of insects, the CGI is used. It's a very clever way to do the
movie and it works very well. However, what did NOT work well for me
were all the sound effects for the racing bugs. Using automobile sound
effects seemed a bit heavy-handed and silly. Fortunately, this soon
gave way to a strange sort of world where instead of voices (like you'd
hear in films like A Bug's Life), you hear a combination of odd
whistles and chirps. It's strange but worksespecially since this makes
the film much more universal than a typical animated film. There's
simply no need to re-dub or caption the movie! I should also note that
I did NOT see this in 3Dand assume that would have improved it
least a bit.
The plot to Minuscule is not so childish or anthropomorphic as the
other insect films I mentioned. In fact, the plot is amazingly simple.
A group of black ants (along with their friend, a lady bug) find a
lunch box filled with sugar and take it back to their colony. However,
a group of red ants are NOT pleasedit should be their sugar and if the
black ants take it, it's war!!
What follows is a very surreal war between the coloniesand the film
improved tremendously. This is because all pretext for realism goes out
the window and the movie really won me over! After all, MOST insect
battles do not involve bugs bringing cans of insect spray, slingshots
and firecrackers to the conflict! Who's going to win? See the film for
The best thing about the film is simply how different it is from
everything else. Too often films are derivative and familiarsomething
that bores me to death. However, here the filmmakers manage to create
something wholly new and clever. The CGI is lovelyand different from
what you'd see from Dreamworks, Disney or Pixar. More noticeable is the
music. It's almost magical and so unlike the typical child-oriented CGI
film. It's instead very classically inspired and perfect for the film.
Finally, the film has a cute sense of humor. While I don't think it's a
comedy or is meant as one, I loved the expressions on the faces of the
red ants. Despite a few slow moments here and there and the rough
start, this is really a film to see. Will it appeal to little kids?
Maybe not. But for older kids, teens and adults who want something
different and not cloyingly sweet but still family-friendly, it's well
worth seeing. Vive la différence!
