Minnie and the Mozzies Cykelmyggen og Minibillen

Jannik Hastrup, Flemming Quist Møller / Denmark / 2014 / 76 min / Slovene subtitles, Danish

The minibeetle Mini performs in a flea circus. The flea Miranda bullies Mini and tricks him into interfering in Dagmar’s line dancing so she falls and sprains her foot. Deeply ashamed, Mini runs away and joins a gang of robbers who order Mini to break into the honey bee stock. But the bee-soldiers catch him, and he is sentenced to life-long hard labour. The bee-princesses find him cute and adopt him as their pet until he flees and asks for sanctuary among the robbers, who have meanwhile stolen Egon’s bike. Miranda regrets her bullying Mini and together with Mini and their brave friends they courageously try to regain Egon’s beloved bike.

Based on an animated universe created nearly 50 years ago, the film takes us on an adventurous journey through a sparkling, colourful universe full of songs, dance, humour, warmth and a festive gallery of personalities and familiar situations. 

Mini and the Mozzies shows traces of our own personal involvement in the world, at heart carried by the fundamental conviction that we shall all of us be honest and balanced in our dealings with each other. In this way, Mini and the Mozzies is presented as a magnificent tale, a glorious yarn overflowing with cheek and verve including subjects of bullying and friendships.” (Jannik Hastrup, Flemming Quist Møller)
