“The Triplets of Belleville” is an animated film released in 2003 by director Sylvain Comet. The storyline follows three elderly sisters who have retired from the vaudeville scene. These musical ladies befriend another elderly lady searching for her kidnapped cyclist grandson. The movie has very little dialogue. Instead, the movie relies on song and dance routines to convey the plotline. The quirky nature and convoluted storyline captured audiences worldwide who fell in love with the jazz music and unique heroines. Professional reviewers were equally charmed, and French Animation suddenly had a wider, more receptive audience.
Past years have seen other Academy Award nominated French animated films such as “The Illusionist”, a melancholy dream of a movie. “A Cat in Paris”, “Arthur 3″ and “Santa’s Apprentice” were received well by critics and audiences alike. In 2011 a slew of French animated films were released. “The Rabbi’s Cat”, “Cinderella 3-D” and “The Boy with The Cuckoo-Clock Heart” are French films to keep an eye out for.
Although the style of French animated movies is more subtle and understated than offerings from Pixar or Disney, the film lover will surely find one or more films to be a new family favorite.
