The Triplets of Belleville

from Film Forum, 12/04/03

An odd invention of hand-drawn animation has arrived in the U.S. to enthusiastic critical acclaim. The French-made cartoon caper The Triplets of Belleville is already inspiring rumors of an Oscar nomination. It follows the wild adventures of an old woman who gets the help of three aging music-hall singers in an attempt to save her grandson from the French mafia.

Doug Cummings (FilmJourney.org) calls it "the eye-candy movie of the year. Virtually every shot in the film is astonishing in its pictorial beauty." He writes, "While the film's humor has a more sardonic edge to it (it's not geared for younger children), the movie never descends into cynicism. Its characters are dedicated and loving, and challenge heroic stereotypes."

Movieguide's critic calls it "a very clever, funny animated movie. If a couple of scatological scenes were removed, the movie would be entertaining and acceptable."
