Today's Short Was Made By One Of The Directors of ERNEST & CELESTINE

The fact that it's about a mouse and a large predator probably shouldn't surprise anyone, given its creator. The style is really fantastic, though -- all silhouettes and vibrant colors and Aesop-y appliqué -- and the story has a nice little kick to it, as well.

It's called "A Mouse's Tale (La Queue de la Souris)," and it's awesome. Enjoy.

A mouse runs into a hungry lion, who spares his life on the condition that he find him bigger, better food. But the lion’s tastes can’t be satisfied.
