    Brave, the latest Pixar animation is set in the most unlikely places, the rugged Scottish highlands in which myths, traditions and matters of the heart are shaken like a cocktail. And this is what lends the film its unique flavor and texture.

    With its winning Pixar formula of superb animation and accessible characters, Brave tells the story of a fiery Princess who must defy her mother's wishes to marry a royal and goes on a crazy and magic-laden journey to finally reconcile with her. The film is replete with gags and over-the-top scenes that sometimes hinder the storytelling, but leave you rolling in the aisles for sure.

    The animation work is fresh and reminiscent of some of Pixar's earlier breathtaking films. In fact the mother-daughter relationship rings quite close to Pixar's Finding Nemo about the father-son bonding. Having added a woman director to their big boys' club, gives Brave the delicacy and the feistiness synonymous with womanhood.

    The Scottish accent is a bit hard to follow at times but works organically very well in the setting of the film. Music-wise also the film stays true to its nature and sometimes even lifts some of the drab scenes.

    With a gamut of animation sequels in the past and many more in the pipeline, Brave offers something fresh, something new and something to aspire for. A delight to watch with the whole family this summer, go out and make your day. 3.5 stars
