Brave
Brave Rating: 68 out of 100 based on 56 reviews.
Depuis la nuit des temps, au cœur des terres sauvages et mystérieuses des Highlands d’Ecosse, récits de batailles épiques et légendes mythiques se transmettent de génération en génération. Merida, l’impétueuse fille du roi Fergus et de la reine Elinor, a un problème… Elle est la seule fille au monde à ne pas vouloir devenir princesse ! Maniant l’arc comme personne, Merida refuse de se plier aux règles de la cour et défie une tradition millénaire sacrée aux yeux de tous et particulièrement de sa mère. Dans sa quête de liberté, Merida va involontairement voir se réaliser un vœu bien malheureux et précipiter le royaume dans le chaos. Sa détermination va lui être cruciale pour déjouer cette terrible malédiction.

Avis pour Brave
MediaMikes
After last year’s “Cars 2″, Pixar was hoping to redeem itself its reputation with “Brave”. They are definitely on the right track with this one but I felt like it was missing something. “Brave” is definitely not your typical princess movie.

No less lovely than former films, in many ways lovelier, but Brave is boutique Pixar: less ambitious, more succinct, excellence at a lower ebb.

Brave won’t go down as one of the great Pixar films - it conspicuously lacks the innovative wonder of Wall-E or Up - but after the colossal misstep that was Cars 2 last year, it finds the studio back on steady, if not exactly earth-shattering ground.
The Telegraph
As creative departures go, Brave certainly lives up to its title. The writers and animators at Pixar have fables down pat: since 1995 they’ve told stories of aging toys who fear the scrapheap, a rat who dreams of becoming a chef, and a fish who...
