I have seen this movie recently and i have to say that is quite good. The story is quite simple: A grandmother tries to make her young grandson (who is living with her) happy, and discovers his fascination for bicycles, so she buys him one. Cut to years later, and he is now a contender for the Tour de France, with his grandmother still doting on him, now acting as his trainer. During the race itself he and other riders are kidnapped and taken to Belleville, so the grandmother and their enormously fat dog go looking for him. Without money or shelter, the two are discovered by three old women, former famous vaudevillians – The Triplets of Belleville. They invite her and the dog in to stay and help her attempt to rescue her grandson.
This movie nominated in 2004 for 2 oscars and won several competitions such as in Toronto in Cannes and in Chicago. The movie distinguish from the soundtrack which has been written by Benoît Charest. The film's soundtrack sounds as though it was greatly influenced by Django's music .
