An animated feature set towards the end of the last century, this is a tale of persecuted Russian mice - the Mouskowitzes - travelling to America in search of a cat-free life. Inevitably, young Feivel is separated from his family and left to wander the mean streets of the Big Apple, encountering corrupt Irish-American politicians from Tammany Hall, streetwise Italian-American guttersnipes, and friendly French pigeons. For all its state-of-the-art animation techniques, Spielberg's production remains resolutely conservative: visually it's virtually indistinguishable from Walt at his wimpiest.
