In this animated French film, a boy named Champion trains relentlessly for the Tour de France, with the help of his loyal grandmother and overweight dog, Bruno (who loves to bark at passing trains). When the big race comes, Champion and a few of his fellow racers are kidnapped by some box-shouldered thugs who spirit them off to Belleville (a surreal impression of 1930s-1950s Manhattan) where they are forced to pedal as part of a clandestine gambling operation. Bruno and Grandma set out across the sea in a paddle boat to rescue their boy, but once ashore they soon become lost, hungry and penniless--that is, until the frog-eating Triplets of Belleville, former scat-singing jazz prodigies turned experimental musicians, come to their rescue. Filled with inspired, twisted imagery, this nearly dialogue-free film is a crowd-pleaser of unusual power, with the strange, measured pacing of a dream, and a great soundtrack of bizarre, alternate-reality '30s jazz. It also offers a touching and believable evocation of a dog's life. A great throwback to the time before animation became dominated by CGI effects, TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE is a very strange, very loving, and very French salute to obsession, affection, and persistence.

  • Great movie

    Delightfully quirky movie, especially for animation fans. Great music, too. I bought this for a movie fan who has seen just about everything else.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • As a teacher of animation, this film is absolutely one of the best noncomputerized films to be made in a long, long time. The story line is wonderful showing a grandmother's undying love for her grandson. Even though a French film, you need not speak French to understand it since there is little dialogue. If you like animation, don't, DON"T miss this one! You'll absolutely love it!
