Family Flicks: The Triplets of Belleville

  • This is a past program

Copresented by the UCLA Film & Television Archive

Recommended for ages 12+

Like the best silent films, this Oscar-nominated French animation relies heavily on pantomime and music to tell the story of dedicated bicyclist Champion who has his sights set on a Tour de France victory. When mobsters kidnap Champion for profit, his pint-sized grandmother teams up with the famed but faded Golden Age song-and-dance triplets from Belleville to rescue him. Full of adventure and inventive visuals, it’s the perfect big screen experience for fans of unique, expressive animation.

(2003, dir. Sylvain Chomet, 35mm, 80 min.)
