The Triplets of Belleville


Dubbed “a tour de force of ink-washed, crosshatched mischief and unlikely sublimity” by The New York Times, The Triplets of Belleville is a wildly inventive and highly original animated feature crowded with colorful characters and fantastic imagery. Kidnapped by mysterious, square-shouldered henchmen, a Tour de France cyclist named Champion is spirited across the ocean to the teeming metropolis of Belleville. His near-sighted grandmother and faithful dog Bruno follow his trail and are taken in by the Belleville Sisters, an eccentric trio of cabaret singers from the days of Fred Astaire. The motley sleuths follow the clues to an underground speakeasy, where the jazz-era divas entertain the crowd… And now the chase is on! Nominated for two Academy Awards, this richly imagined animated film transports viewers to the exciting streets of 1920s Paris and Le Jazz Hot.
