Les Triplettes de Belleville

Went to see Les Triplettes de Belleville last night with a friend from work. We went because the film is nominally about cycling -- a cyclist in the Tour de France is kidnapped by the French Mafia, but instead we were treated to possibly the wittiest, most entertaining and most charming film we had ever seen in our lives. We were both laughing out loud throughout the entire film, where there are so many funny little touches, little digs at American and French culture (and at French cars), it is impossible not to love this film. Don't let the fact that it is listed as a French language film with no subtitles put you off, between the two of us we probably had about four words of French (and most of those were rude), there is so little dialogue in the film that you won't miss a beat...

Find out where you can see this film as soon as possible and then go and see it, you will not regret the 80 minutes of your life spent in this quirky little French world.
