An entertaining, witty, dark animated film, full of quirky characters and very subtle social commentary. [Full review in Spanish]

The plot and its destination - although pleasurable - are not as important as the intense degree of joy in getting there.

Both joyous and melancholy, almost as if the old-fashioned and the new collided and shattered, and the pieces fell in place to create this incredible film.

A shimmering, knowing homage to the beginnings of sound animation.

The tone of this droll, thrillingly odd animated film isn't easy to describe...A tad dark for little kids, this one-of-a-kind movie delivers 80 minutes of idiosyncratic inspiration.

A wonderfully weird bit of French animation that amounts to little but a celebration of its creator's bountiful imagination, yet manages to enthrall because writer-director Sylvain Chomet is such a solid visual storyteller.

The chaos in this picture all but reeks from the screen. I thought it was hilarious.

It occasionally suffers from longeurs, but it's moving and funny with moments of genius. More of the same, s'il vous plat.

Vous guessed it by now: Triplettes is terrific.
July 22, 2008
A winning blend of dark and bittersweet, aimed more at adults than kiddies, but suitable for all ages.
January 26, 2006
Relish the film's deadpan grotesquery, its flair for invention, be it the fanciful narrative segues or various object lessons...

If there's any justice in the world, French animator Sylvain Chomet will be handed the Animated Feature Oscar in February for this fantastic little film.

There are high-powered opiates that don't pack the psychedelic kick of this cartoon.

La historia se cuenta en imgenes y sonidos, y ese es un primer gran mrito a tener en cuenta en una poca en que los personajes del cine suelen hablar demasiado.

A bustling cornucopia of delights.
