Sylvain Chomet’s incredible animated feature film is one of the most original films you could hope to see in long time. Beautifully hand drawn animation brings a touching and hilarious story to life with nods to Jacques Tati and 101 Dalmations along the way. A film as heartwarming as it is surreal and strange, The Triplets of Beleville follows elderly Frenchwoman Madame Souza as she becomes involved in international intrigue when her grandson, Champion, a professional cyclist, is kidnapped and taken abroad. Joined by her faithful dog, Bruno, Souza embarks on a journey to find Champion, and stumbles across unlikely allies in the form of three sisters (The Triplets of Belleville) who are veterans of the vaudeville stage. Tracking down Champion’s criminal captors, the quartet of old women use their wits to try and win the day.
This Oscar, BAFTA and Cannes nominated film will beguile you from the first scene.
