A new fantasy with love for music

However, upon arriving, our two heroes discover that all forms of music have been banned there for many years –and for them, a life without music is unthinkable. Along with their friends and a mysterious masked outlaw, Ernest and celestine must try their best to bring music and happiness back to the land of bears.The usual magic deployed by the duo Ernest and Celestine works wonders again in this new adventure. A film of great poetic and political significance.Based on an original idea by Agnès Bidaud and Didier Brunner, and on the original work Ernest and Celestine by Gabrielle Vincent.
