Watched The Triplets of Belleville last night after we came home from our parish's Lenten Supper series. What an odd little movie. It takes a bit to get used to the animation--very not American to say the least!. At first I was so distracted by how ugly I thought everything was, that it took me a bit to get into the story. But it doesn't take long to fall under the spell of Madam Souza and her incessant whistle, to love the dog (who is too much like our own constantly barking dogs), and admire the Triplets (who else would carry a bombs tucked into their hosiery?).
I remembered this from last year's Academy Awards, and when it popped up on my Netflix recommendations, I took a chance. I'd give it four stars. If you're an animation fan, you should check it out. And the score to the movie is absolutely hypnotic.
