For the consideration of General Zod...

Alex Eylar expressed his suspicions in a recent post that I might not have been as familiar with Triplets of Belville as I claimed.


Hopefully exhibit A will assuage his doubts to some degree. (Great movie, for anyone who's not seen it!)

    I didn't realize Alex Eylar had spent time in a crazy mirror prison!

    But what is this triplets movie? I've never heard of it.

    ^ It's a pretty good animated movie from Belgium. But not for everyone I must say. Its French Art Nouveau style, story and pacing and it's pre war Gypsian jazz (Django Reinhardt type) soundtrack maybe to arty for a lot... but I like it alot.

    It's a lovely animated movie from my country... 8)

    @ peterImorris: it's about cycling
  • Mark Kelso 6y

    They summed it up pretty well. A few details...

    All of the characters are quite odd in appearance and behaivor. The general story is about a boy who grows up to be a competitive cyclist with the aid of his Grandmother (I think grandmother) and beloved dog. During a competition, he's kidnapped and taken to the City of Belville. There he's forced, by members of a mob, to ride a stationary bike in competition with other cyclists for the gambling pleasure of the underground crowds. It's up to his grandmother, the dog, and three old ladies (the triplets) to save him from the gangsters.

    Oh, fine, I believe you. Consider my doubts assuaged.

    And, people, I cannot emphasize enough how great "The Triplets of Belleville" is. If you like fat dogs and stick grenades, this is your movie.

    Thank you general Zod, I shall now be on the lookout for this movie.

    Don’t you have anything normal like The Dark Knight or Transformers or something?

    Gambling on stationary bike racing?! Wah?!

    What, couldn’t you find any movies about back alley tiddlywink matches or deathmatch knitting?

    *dammed artsy freak…*
  • Erik 6y

    OMG I used to have so much fun playing tiddlywinks at may grandparents... *flashback*

    I take it this movie has absolutely nothing to do with the lame pseudo-barbie theme from Lego.
  • Gorazd Vahen 6y

    I liked the film, especially the cars those mobsters were driving. 2CV made into a thirties limo. We should LEGO those!
