Director: Sylvain Chomet
Stars: Béatrice Bonifassi, Lina Boudreault
This French film, Sylvain Chomet's first feature animation, is less for kids and more for adults, and still stands as his greatest work. View it for his animation, one of the most unique styles we've seen in years, or for its witty story of a grandma, her dog, and the aged song-and-dance team, the Belleville Sisters, trying to get back a kidnapped Tour de France cyclist.
Though it was nominated for two Academy Awards, The Triplets of Belleville is still considered a hidden gem. It's detailed, surreal, and incredibly charming. —TA
