About The Amazing Maurice
The film tells the tale of Maurice, a large talking cat, who travels from town to town offering to solve their sudden rat problem. He unveils Keith, a young pipe-playing boy, who marches the rats out of town, to the relief of the townsfolk. Maurice (along with the money received from the grateful townspeople) suddenly disappears, reappearing a suitable distance away to count the money with Keith and the rats!
But these are no ordinary rats – they talk, wear clothes and dream of an island paradise where rats and humans live together in peace. All goes well with their ‘rat scam’ until they reach the town of Bad Blintz, where they meet a book-obsessed girl, Malicia, who leads them on an adventure to solve the mystery of her town…
