The Triplets of Belleville

The Triplets of Belleville

Directed by Sylvain Chomet • 2003 • France

Sylvain Chomet’s wondrous homage to antique animation blends Jazz Age whimsy with retina-tickling surrealism for a one-of-a-kind, Oscar-nominated confection. When her cyclist grandson is kidnapped during the Tour de France, the intrepid Madame Souza embarks on a madcap quest to the city of Belleville, where she joins forces with a trio of scat-singing faded flappers to rescue him. Achieving its stunning visuals through a mix of hand-drawn and computer animation, THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE conjures an anything-goes universe where canine dreams, musical vacuum cleaners, and man-eating tap shoes are all part of the fun.
