Who put the "bend" in the bendy straw?


"Les Triplettes de Belleville" (The Triplets of Belleville)

What a great film! Whether you are an animator, or not, you should go and see it.
It is a beautiful example of animation as it is drawn, with a judicious sprinkling of 3D animation where appropriate.
It also doesn't matter what language you speak - the story tells itself visually. That is not to say that this is a quiet film - far from it - the sounds are great. And the characters! The style! The movement! Can you not feel these exclamation marks leaping off the screen??!!
And the story! What an excellent tale - dare we breathe "original"?!

In the words of Stimpy - "Oh joy!"
So go and see it. Your grandma demands it of you.
