The Triplets of Belleville


This arthouse animated feature kicks off with our heroine, a grandma looking after her grandson, who is a cyclist taking part in the Tour de France. When the local mafia kidnap him, she ropes in her dog to track him down. Along the way they meet the three ladies of the title, who lend a hand in rescueing the boy. The film features minimal dialogue and a wacky sense of humour. French language with English subtitles.
