The Triplets of Belleville
Released in 2004 in the US THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE is one of the most beloved films we've ever shown. When her grandson is kidnapped during the Tour de France, Madame Souza and her beloved pooch Bruno team up with the Belleville Sisters--an aged song-and-dance team from the days of Fred Astaire--to rescue him. Richly detailed and loaded with surreal touches, THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE is an odd, delightful charmer. The LA Times raved "A truly out-there piece of comic animation, the most outlandishly visual film of the year, this 80-minute French treat takes us into a world that can barely be described, a world unlike any we've seen before." While the New York Times said "A tour de force of ink-washed, crosshatched mischief and unlikely sublimity." THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, Vudu, Apple, DirectTV and others.
