Princess Merida of the Scottish clan of Penbroch has always been very close to her parents, but lately her mother, Queen Elinor, is getting on her nerves, what with always nagging about how princesses should – and most certainly should not ¬– conduct themselves. The spirited young royal is far more interested in her bow and arrows and climbing cliffs than she is in the finer points of dignified comportment and the traditions of the clans.
Faced with betrothal to a neighbouring hapless prince, Merida decides that rules are made to be broken – a decision that causes more than a wee bit of havoc in the royal family, particularly when a magic spell the princess employs to try to get her mother onside has rather unexpected results. So begins the story of a fierce love between a rambunctious princess and her stately mother.
Making use of traditional instruments, among them bagpipes, penny whistles and deer hide drums, composer Patrick Doyle imbues the film with a Celtic atmosphere that brilliantly suits its medieval Scottish setting and accompanies us through a charming fairy-tale land of magic, mystery, danger and the tremendous love of family.
