Les Triplettes De Belleville

Les Triplettes De Belleville

The most wonderful animated film I've ever seen! Watch the French version - it's virtually a silent film anyway - and allow yourself to be immersed into the odd whimsy of this movie. A boy named Champion is raised by his loving grandmother, Madame Souza and grows into a massively-thighed Tour de France competitor. However, during the race, he and a number of other cyclists are kidnapped by thugs and Madame Souza accompanied by her faithful, fat and flatulent dog Bruno chase after them to the metropolis of Belleville. Lost and confused in the city, she meets the mysterious Belleville Triplettes, in their youth a glamourous performing act who now subsist by bomb-fishing for frogs and performing as an odd jazz combo. Madame Souza joins them and soon discovers where Champion is being held and hatches a plan to rescue him. Bewilderingly creative, truly original and fascinating is the world of Les Triplettes de Belleville. See for yourself!
