Film Review - The Triplets Of Belleville (2003)
The animation is derived from french culture and follows the story of a boy named 'Champion' who dreams to win the Tour de France, the journey is wacky, grotesque and its plot is hidden beneath the exploits on screen by the absurd doings of the characters. The humour is quite dark in places and the animation looks to surprise at every turn, becoming quite surreal in places you would expect realism. With almost everything being exaggerated in some form, it keeps the animation fresh in the audiences mind and that being said keeps them glued to the screen.
I would recommend this film to those who enjoy watching humorous grotesque animations, a flair for the theatrical or into the wacky day to days of people who rival the personas of some cult classics such as 'Wacky Racers'.
