There are two movies I remember as a child that gave me a sense of intense wonder and awe. One was the Last Unicorn, and the other was the Secret of Nimh. Both movies displayed an unprecedented level of maturity when tackling their respective storylines. The Secret of Nimh is much like the Last Unicorn in the sense that the plot is intelligent, and at times necessarily dark. It's a haunting movie by many standards, but strikes a better balance between comedy, excitement, and foreboding than the Last Unicorn does.

A rather simple premise opens the door to a much larger world when one watches the Secret of Nimh. The plight of Mrs. Brisbee and her children is just something one would expect to see on any farmland, especially during plow season. But when Mrs. Brisbee seeks out help from the woefully dangerous Rats of Nimh, she discovers an entire world she never knew existed.

There are many intelligent plot twists that come together nicely in this movie. A family in peril, government-funded animal experimentation and even a bit of unexplained mysticism all work together to draw the viewer in. Anyone expecting an animated film designed purely to maintain a hold over the short attention spans of toddlers will be in for a surprise. The film is absolutely gorgeous to watch, more so for its lush imagination than its actual artistic quality. Every ounce of this film drips with uniqueness, and I challenge anyone to find a movie that has the same feel as the Secret of Nimh. It is a bit less serious and melancholy than the Last Unicorn, but it still manages to eschew frivolous silliness in favor of some real depth and emotion within its characters.

Highly recommended for all ages!

I'm 23 years old now, and my girlfriend wanted me to rent this...I was like "uh, the secret of nimh??? ok sweetie whatever you say..." I haven't seen this movie probably in 15 years and i will say...I'm going to buy it now. What a cool movie, It's just entertaining...and even kind of scary... It's totally cool to remember things from your childhood, and I had to have seen this flick 100 times when i was a kid, and I'm barely remembering it now...buy it, and remember your childhood...it's good for you.

This is a good family story with just enough suspense and scary scenes to be interesting to young children while not making too frightening to watch.

Une histoire captivante, lisse, une animation propre, et une combinaison musicale exceptionnelle se mêle pour faire de ce film une expérience enrichissante sensorielle.

Situé dans la tradition des films d'animation de Disney, mais la saveur de ce film est une nuance différente. Je dirais presque plus «réaliste». En ne mettant pas de côté tout les films Disney (que j'adore regarder), ce film traite d'un problème posé sur un niveau de «ça peut arriver». Aucune recherche d'un prince charmant dans cette histoire - juste une personne (la souris dans le film) qui tente de régler les problèmes du monde réel de la façon de déplacer la maison de la famille Brisby dans des conditions d'urgence lorsque l'un de ses membres est trop malade pour se déplacer.

L'histoire a beaucoup de charme et d'esprit et aussi, un peu de mortalité. L'art et l'animation sont de premier ordre, et l'intrigue coule sans beaucoup de détails sans importance pour le rembourrage. Les très jeunes enfants ne peuvent pas suivre exactement ce message qui est envoyé à l'audience, cependant, ils vont probablement profiter du spectacle. Pour plus de téléspectateurs, la plupart devraient être en mesure de revenir sur le thème de la "compassion et l'auto-sacrefice" dans des conditions difficiles.

A l'origine n'est pas un film bien connu, il a mis en place un véritable culte au fil des ans. Ce film mérite une place dans votre vidéothèque - surtout si vous avez des enfants.

*** Chaudement recommandée ***

The Secret of Nimh is an animated classic which was crafted by Don Bluth and his team of skilled laborers. Based on the popular children's book "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh," the film is a loose adaptation which introduces several elements into the story while jettisoning a few others. What emerges is a film that will captivate young children, while confusing older viewers.

Mrs. Brisby (name changed due to legal constraints at the time of filming) is a widowed mouse with four young children, one of whom has been struck with pneumonia. The timing could not be worse, however. The Brisby family has made their home near a large stone in a farmer's field, which is plowed once a year in what animals refer to as "Moving Day." Brisby's ill son Timmy cannot be moved into the cold air for three weeks, prompting her to seek out help. Facing down her terrible fear, she first visits the Great Owl who can offer no help regarding her situation. That changes when the Great Owl learns that Mrs. Brisby is the widowed wife of Jonathan Brisby, a mouse with a revered reputation among the animal community. He instructs her to visit the rats which reside in the rosebush near the farmer's home, and ask for the help of Nicodemus, an elderly rat with great intelligence and mystical powers. It is there that she learns the truth of her late husband's past, and gains the help of the rats to move her house to a safe spot. The plans threaten to go awry when the vicious Jenner plots to sabotage the operation in order to seize power over the group. In the midst of it all is Mrs. Brisby's family, whose lives hang in the balance. To save them, she'll need to summon "courage of the heart," which is very rare.

This is a wondrous movie, packed into a brisk 1 hour, 22 second running time.
