Animated tale, produced by a staff of Disney-trained artists led by "American Tail's" Bluth; concerns a newly widowed mouse who discovers a secret agency of superintelligent rats (they've escaped from a science lab) who aid her in protecting her family. We return to the realm of Bluth, that oh-so-strange animation director with the hit-or-miss filmography that inspires many an animator in the field, aspiring or veteran. Luckily, The Secret of NIMH does indeed control its mature elements with a casual respect that works for the film, rather than against it.
Intelligence spurs the rats to try and move from the farm for better a better life for ethical reasons (they can no longer live like rats and steal!) but morally speaking, they still are SOBs. This entry was posted on November 9, 2009, 12:07 am and is filed under Animation, Childhood Revisited, Film, Uncategorized. As is usually the case with Bluth films, the animation is superb while the socially aware plot struggles to keep pace. Brisby, a shy and timid field mouse, lives in a cinder block with her children on the Fitzgibbons' farm.
The movie did very well at the box office, grossing 14 million, double its budget, but let’s see if that secret is still as potent as it was back then.
A mouse mother, whose child is sick with pneumonia, has to figure out a way to move her house before the farmer’s plow comes in and destroys everything, including her family.
The voice actors don’t oversell their deliveries or push into exaggerated caricatures. The Secret of NIMH doesn’t push its plot or themes on the viewer (the humor, however, is another thing).
I especially want to point out how well the sounds and music was used—and when the sounds and music weren’t used.
Subtlety works well for Secret and other films like The Rescuers and Great Mouse Detective.
Having no one to help her with her problems, a widowed mouse visits the rats whose former imprisonment in a laboratory made them wise and civilized. Frisby's name is changed to "Brisby" in the film due to trademark concerns with Frisbee discs), written by author Robert C. She is preparing to move her family out of the field they live in as plowing time approaches; however, her son Timothy has fallen ill. I did come up short on detailing thoroughly on the movie’s parallel to the Jewish experience in 1890s Russia.

As I grew older and became much more accepting of darker, heavier films of the animated kind, upon thinking back onto this movie, another question came into my brain: what the f*ck did amulets and magic have to do with what basically amounted to a film about a mother saving her sick son?
It’s only recently that companies like Pixar (and to a lesser extent, Dreamworks) manage to create films that do balance the perfect line between appealing to both adults and children (and genuine criticism).
There’s a lot of interesting and complex story points here, but for the most part, Ms.
Carefully and slowly, it becomes clear that the mice and rats and other critters of the farm are divided by class in some manner; Ms. The silent, quieter moments add much more to the movie than one might think possible, and when the score does pop in, you can bet it’s there for a reason. When she turns to a society of super-intelligent rats for help, a tense adventure is set in motion. The script was reformatted with the fantasy elements to fit the 80s paradigm of popular young fantastical fare, but since I remembered so little about the film, I was desperate to 1) figure it out and 2) find out if it worked.
Brisby is forced to do a lot by herself, showcasing a tremendous amount of bravery for a recently widowed wife. They stumble over their words, stammer and stutter, talk over each other—speaking as if everything is real, not hyper-real. The film doesnt talk down to a younger audience or smooth over its darker moments, but should be fine for kids who can handle strong suspense. Ages, another mouse and old friend of her late husband, who provides her with some medicine from his laboratory. Brisby feed her ill son as her other kids look on, you can’t help but feel her plight. Too often animators are forced to push animation to the max–like the Genie in Aladdin. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH’ in fifth grade which left a big impression on me as did the animated film. It was directed by Don Bluth, produced by Aurora Pictures, and released by United Artists, in the summer of 1982.
Story adaptation by Don Bluth, Gary Goldman, John Pomeroy and Will Finn (from the book Mrs. On her way back home she encounters Jeremy, a clumsy but compassionate crow.The next day spring plowing begins, and though Mrs.

Brisby must move her home to the other side of a big rock before the farmer’s plow comes to destroy it.
With the help of Jeremy she visits the Great Owl, a wise creature living in the nearby woods, to ask for help.
He tells her to visit a mysterious group of rats who live beneath a rose bush on the farm and ask for Nicodemus. Brisby, the widowed head of a family of field mice, that her youngest son must die, either by the farmers spring plough or of pneumonia in his flight to safety. Brisby employs the help of the rats of NIMH – a highly advanced society of freed lab rats. In her quest for a cure she frees a young crow from some string in which he has "For I looked upon the words under the cage door, and understood them.
It is: What if a group of laboratory animals were injected with an experimental drug that made them as intelligent as humans? There have been smart animals in the movies for years of is a 1982 animated feature film made by Don Bluth. More sci-fi connections!)This film may fall into one of those semi-genre categories, something I like to call “sorta kinda science fiction”, but it fits into the sci fi genre nonetheless. The environment is rationally imaginative in that we suppose a world where animal testing has made lab rats so advanced, they’ve created their own mini-advanced world in a rosebush. In 1998 - a Direct to Video Sequel to the of was made by MGM (Without Don Bluths Permission). We are thrust into a world where we see how scientific inquiry can be disastrous even to the littlest of creatures.
There are very adult themes appearing throughout the film such as the trials and tribulations of being a widowed mother and how class systems are built based on literacy and the availability of resources.Plus, there’s animals who talk.
