It's a must-see for animation fans, but others, including youngsters, may just as likely be bored or baffled.

If Walt Disney had gone on a binge of red wine, hallucinatory drugs and absurdist plays, The Triplets of Belleville could have sprouted from his animation empire.

Too far-fetched for me to dive into a genre I have not yet acquired a taste for.

As original as it is strange, The Triplets of Belleville not only will win you over with that potent combination, but will likely tempt you to seek out its company again and again.

Everything about the film, from the characters to the settings, is tres bizarre, yet it's all weirdly compelling.

If you have an open mind, and an appreciation of film animation, you will surely enjoy the film's clever gags, as well as the sensational blending of cel animation and computer-enhanced backgrounds and action.

Triplets is as visually unfamiliar as a foreign language.

A comfortably subversive and accomplished film that speaks to everyone, without talking down to anyone.

It is funny in spurts, frightening, moving, magical, exhilarating, horrific, smart and silly. It is all this and more.

I'm not so sure what Chomet's getting at here, or even if there's really much to be gotten at all. But the movie's a bona fide eye-popper. (Man, I wish I still smoked pot.)

Se precisei assistir a esta animação 3 vezes somente para escrever sobre ela, nem imagino quantas vezes voltarei a vê-la apenas pelo prazer de visitar a criação de Chomet.

Feels simultaneously cutting-edge and a new classic of the cartoon genre.
