Her hobbies? Break-ins and escape the police. Until the day they get caught at an awards ceremony. But everyone deserves a second chance. In order not to go through the prison box, the governor challenges them to do the most difficult thing of their lives, namely to become respectable citizens.

“Max and Emmy: Mission Easter”, by Ute von Münchow-Pohl
Staying on topic, in the dark rooms, toddlers can discover German filmmaker Ute von Münchow-Pohl’s “Max and Emmy: Mission Easter,” to whom we particularly credit “The Elfkins: Operation Pastry.” . While all the bunnies are busy for the big day, the foxes, mesmerized by the beautifully decorated eggs, have decided to steal them.
Also, in an attempt to save this great festival, Leo, a former Easter Bunny School student who never accepted his expulsion, threatened Max, the school’s only bunny in town, brash and clumsy, and their friend Emmy, agile and always ready , to defend them can count on the help of their comrades, including the ingenious Ferdinand, a fox who is not necessarily welcome.
This animated film tells a beautiful story of friendship while showing the strength and power of differences in the face of adversity. With the egg hunt fast approaching, Max and Emmy: Easter Mission gives young viewers a chance to delve into this tradition while fueling chocolate cravings.
“Max and Emmy: Easter Mission”, Ute von Münchow-Pohl (1h16), in cinemas from April 13th.
“SONIC 2, THE MOVIE,” BY JEFF FOWLER
While the transition from 2D to 3D in video games was never really good for Sonic, Sega’s little blue hedgehog has found a second youth full of success thanks to 3D CGI in the cinema. On the program of this 2nd part, signed by Jeff Fowler and carried by an omnipresent humor, we obviously find Sonic spending peaceful days in the village of Green Hill.
But this enchanted brace ends quickly when Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) manages to escape from the mushroom planet he was sent to. This “foldable” doctor owes his escape to the appearance of Knuckles, a super-powered being who is Sonic’s alter ego and well known to video game fans. Along with Tails, the little twin-tailed fox, Sonic will quickly understand the dark designs that drive this duo of villains.
While Jim Carrey’s “The Mask” page may have some parents cringe, the actor’s “Toonesque” portrayal in Robotnik’s shoes still works for the youngest. The bubbly atmosphere of Sonic and his new friends is enough to make this a purely family movie that serves its purpose.
Sonic 2, the movie, Jeff Fowler (2:02), currently in theaters.
