After probably the most controversial Tour De France in history relax and enjoy this whimsical look at the Tour amongst other things.
Not that its without a fair share of skullduggery. A wonderful animated short - with the most addictive score of all time - covering themes as varied as friendship, a mother love, fat dogs and trains, the power of music and toasted frogs and ze mafia.
Very 1930s/1940s not so politically correct in places but shure what is? Beautiful animation in an autumnal style...

Accompanied by some political shorts



Les Triplettes de Belleville is an award-winning 2003 animated feature film written and directed by Sylvain Chomet. It was released as The Triplets of Belleville in North America, and as Belleville Rendez-vous in the UK. The film features the voices of Michèle Caucheteux, Jean-Claude Donda, Michel Robin, and Monica Viegas; although there is some dialogue, the majority of the film story is told through song and pantomime. The film was highly praised by audiences and critics for its unique (and somewhat retro) style of animation. It was an international co-production between companies in France, Belgium and Canada.

The film satirically pokes fun at national stereotypes and clichés foreigners spread about French and Americans. It laughs at the stereotype of the French (for example their alleged obsession with the Tour de France, or their so-called fondness for eating frogs) as well as the image foreigners have of Americans in their allegedly exaggerated obesity and lewd manner. The film features no spoken dialogue per se, though some spoken words (such as Tour de France radio commentary and a speech by Charles de Gaulle on evening TV) are included sporadically. French people speak with an "old" accent and American people speak with a Quebecer accent.
