IMDb

The film Even Mice Belong in Heaven is about hope, a quest for love and courage, and about overcoming prejudices and old pains. The story reveals that everything that seems to be at an end is the beginning of something else, and what appears to be invincible can be surmounted.

What I like about this story is that it deals with problems that all children face, such as fear. Children experience fear at different levels or intensity, but they all have to deal with it. Just as death and friendship are topics that come up at a very early age. Another very important theme is prejudice. Whizzy always believed that foxes were bad and that she could never be friends with one. But in this parallel heavenly world, where animals can

no longer eat each other, and where they are freed of their natural instincts, Whizzy discovers that she has a lot in common with the fox cub, they both like the same things and have similar opinions. It is a film that says that sometimes it is important to shake up the established order, whether natural or not.

This is also a film about love and about self-fulfilment. Our little mouse, Whizzy, strives to find the lost love of her father who died prematurely at the hands of a nasty fox, and she must banish her fears. In this adventure, she crosses paths with another fragile being, Whitebelly, a young fox cub also in search of love, who will do everything to win her friendship and her trust.

This film is a real European co-production. At times, the film was being made in eight different locations in Europe. Filming lasted for just over 14 months. We built around 80 sets and created over 100 puppets. We filmed on several different sets simultaneously, with 8 animators, which makes it, in terms of organisation and budget, the biggest stop-motion production ever made in the Czech Republic.
