The Triplets of Belleville

The Triplets of Belleville is a 2003 animated feature film. The Younger Son bought this at Borders this afternoon, and we watched it tonight. I laughed out loud through a lot of it and found it thoroughly delightful. It's now one of my favorite films.

Roger Ebert opens his review saying,
"The Triplets of Belleville" will have you walking out of the theater with a goofy damn grin on your face, wondering what just happened to you.

Slant Magazine says that
The entire film is like one elaborate spell, a ritual of character and events that makes little rational or logical sense

EW says,
If ''Finding Nemo'' is an awesome Pixar superpower, The Triplets of Belleville is a charming, idiosyncratic, self-governing duchy with huge tourism potential on the other side of the animated-movie planet.
If "The Triplets of Belleville" is any indication, Chomet [the diretor], who was born in France and has lived in Canada since 1993, is one of the most inventive animators we've got.

There are screen shots here.
