Triplets could be described as Max Fleischer on acid.

Its strange vacillation between the hopeful and the arbitrarily cold is still a mystery to me... It's not a great film, but then again, it is.

Words cannot replicate the world that Chomet has designed here; description is pointless, as Belleville simply must be experienced firsthand.

Exploring imagery's universal potential, the movie reaches artistic heights by allowing us to recognize ourselves in people and customs that initially seem brazenly foreign.

Chomet's charming, visually cluttered so imaginative and vividly realized you could freeze any frame and spend an hour picking through its details.

One of his greatest achievements is allowing the audience to crawl inside Bruno's head. Not since "Babe" has a movie made me care so much for a four-legged character.

Let the movie wash over you, and, at the very least, it will cleanse your palate.

...might be the French counterpart of a Jerry Lewis movie. For the few that will love it, as many more will be baffled three times over.
