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 plaît.

Just when Jeffrey Katzenberg had loudly declared the death of 2-D animation, along came this sly, inventively drawn cartoon that blew the cumbrous studio leviathans out of the water.

A winning blend of dark and bittersweet, aimed more at adults than kiddies, but suitable for all ages.

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.

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

It's impossible to watch this movie without gasping at its graphics, and yet we're so drawn into Chomet's way of seeing that, after a while, his genius erases the distinction between animation and live action.

'El estilo y la atmósfera en que se desarrolla son de una calidad e inteligencia que pocas veces podemos apreciar de este lado del Atlántico.'

The Triplets of Belleville is an animated feature with two out-of-the-ordinary superheroes: a zealous old lady and a very fat dog.
