An American Tail (1986)




An American Tail is an animated film produced by Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, and directed by Don Bluth, originally released in movie theatres on November 21, 1986.



Film's Plot:

This film shows the story of the life of a family of Jewish-Russian mice who emigrate to New York City, believing that there are no cats in America. Once there, they immediately discover that there are indeed cats in America and plenty of them, and begin living in a typical late 19th century immigrant manner: working in a sweatshop, living in horrible conditions, and paying the cats tribute as an alternative to being eaten. The film follows Feivel Mousekewitz (his first name comes from that of Steven Spielberg's grandfather), who is separated from his family as the boat approaches America; the movie chronicles Feivel's search for his family, and his struggle against the Cats, including their money hungry leader, Warren T. Rat, a cat who just disguises himself as a rat.

For me, I personally love the song "Somewhere Out There" a lot but i never know that it's actually a song for a motion pictures. Last week my sis showed me this clips from YouTube. After viewing it, I can't help myself but to love this song even more coz the voice of Fievel and Tanya are way too cute ^_^. Repeatedly viewing the clips for N times :p Then i started to surf for more info about this film. Now i have this problem here, where can i get to download or get this movie? I was just 1 years old when the film actually released. Can anyone out there tell me where can i get this movie? I appreciate the info given. Thanks~
Somewhere Out There
Fievel: Somewhere out there,
beneath the pale moonlight,
someone's thinking of me and loving me tonight.
Tanya: Somewhere out there,
someone's saying a prayer,
that we'll find one another in that big somewhere out there.
(*)Tanya: And even though I know how very far apart we are,
it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star.
Fievel: And when the night wind starts to sing a lonesome lullaby,
it helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky.
Together: Somewhere out there,
if love can see us through,
then we'll be together,
somewhere out there,
out where dreams come true.
Performed by Phillip Glasser (Fievel) & Betsy Cathcart (Tanya)
