You Sexy Thing
Pierre, a Hole with a View
Vermin need love, too. Follow the trials and tribulations of a French mouse and his gorgeous new roommate. Never mind that the roommate is human. As the saying goes, one doesn't always choose who you fall in love with. A charming love story about unrequited love inspired by the classic animations from Warner Brothers and Tex Avery. The film took writer/director Dan Brown two years to complete. Principal cast: Tasha Smith and John Armstrong (voice over).
