One of the most wonderful unique animated films ever made is “The Triplets of Belleville.” A simple and well told story with very little dialogue and a few song scattered throughout is magnificently relayed through action and animation. A loving grandmother realizes that her only grandson is obsessed with bicycles so she buys him one and becomes his coach. As an adult, he is contender in the Tour de France and his grandmother is still his biggest fan. In the middle of the race, some of the riders are kidnapped by villains and taken to Belleville. The grandmother along with her enormous pet dog, set off for the city in order to free her grandson. Penniless and in a strange city, grandma soon runs into trouble with no where to sleep and no food to eat. Three old women, the triplets of Belleville, come to their rescue offering them a place to stay and attempt to help the grandmother save with her grandson. Director Sylvain Chomet really outdid himself on the characters in the film. Most are very memorable. The majority are extremely fat, including the Statue of Liberty. The bicyclists have tiny waists and huge legs along with facial features that really stand out such as foot long noses.
