Movie Clip Wednesdays: Favorite Animation

The Triplets of Belleville has to be one of the most charming movies ever made. If you haven't seen it, put it in your queue immediately. A film as effervescent and irresistible as a glass of pink champagne, I challenge you to even try to be in a bad mood after seeing it. It's mostly a silent film in that there's very little dialog – just lots of sound effects and music. Here are two of my favorite scenes.

The triplets "then."



And "now."

Good morning Moi,

You find some of the most interesting stuff. The guy in the butt crack was funny.

"irresistible as a glass of pink champagne"

When Moi speaks, I listen. This is great and I had no idea it existed. Karl is right, you do come up with some truly amazing stuff. Great pick and I will get a copy and watch.

I agree with Karl & Boxer.
This is truly unique, and now I want to see all of it!
I'm a big fan of the obscure, and I think this pretty much is!

Fantastic!

Ha! Love this movie.

Your post made me remember that show "So You Think You Can Dance" had a piece with the music:

I thought it was kinda charming itself.

Okay, now in the queue for me to watch. Never seen, nor heard of it. But I have to tell you, I pulled up your page FULLY expecting to see "Watership Down" ... those poor bunnies!

Does this guy stuck in my butt crack make my ass look big? Bwahaha This is definitely you Moi. Now I'm going to play the Hallelujah chorus on my fridge.

Happy MCW!

I saw this fabulous movie with my friend Chill, last year, on my annual trip to New Jersey. A day or two later, we went to visit her three elderly female cousins--sisters who live together. Now we always refer to them as "The Triplets."
