It's hard to say exactly why I love "The Triplets of Belleville" so much; it's just one of those films that I completely respond to and that sweeps me up in its spirit. The music is a joy to listen to, the visual gags are top-notch, and I simply adore Chomet's caricature style of drawing. It's funny, unique, and a complete joy to experience.
Somehow I didn't expect this film to be so absurd, which turned out to be a pleasant surprise! The animation is very funny, the musical scenes are very nice, the style feels delightfully French and the story on a whole is silly, but works well for the film. I liked it.
I believe this movie changed many things in animation art . it has effected many young animators' short films , designs .
because this movie has a language with full of movement , without dialogue .For this reason when people first saw this movie ,they really shocked. it doesnt look like disney or anime movies. İt is combination of experimantal art with film noir ,nouvelle vague , french comics... so different.
heartwarming <3. Probably my favorite movie...I'm in love with every frame and with every character since Bruno to the waiter. .I absolutely adore the atmosphere of the film, its unique animation style and Chomet's dark humour. This movie reminds me why watching cartoons was so fascinating.
