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

...director Chomet proves to be quite effective at establishing an utterly bizarre looking variation on our world, he's just not able to hold our interest all the way through.

The big test was how few times I could look at my watch to determine how much more agony I had to endure.

...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.

A beautiful but dull affair.

A dialog-free, animated film for adults that would have made a great short film, but, without speech or much of a story, it is seventy-five minutes too long.

doesn't have much to offer outside of its technical achievements, which is both amazing and a shame, considering Chomet's fertile imagination.

Thanks to Chomet, 'beautifully strange' has a new home address, and it's in Belleville.

For someone with an adventurous cinematic appetite, a production that makes Miyazaki appear mainstream is surely worth a look.

Triplets is as visually unfamiliar as a foreign language.

While, like most animated films, The Triplets of Belleville was made by many people, this divinely eccentric movie feels as if it came straight to the screen from one man's wild and wantonly free imagination.

The astonishing, outlandish, and singular originality of this movie defeats any attempt to describe or explain it. But it also makes it a lot of fun to watch.

Virtually dialogue free, Les triplettes is full of funny and bizarre images, often in the same frame.

International story of bicycling, rescue, singing, the passage of time and the nature of evil is a fantastic use of animation for grown-up storytelling.

An odd and oddly satisfying concoction.
