Triplets of Belleville, The

Surreal animated tale about a club-footed grandmother who, along with her faithful slobbering hound and a trio of ex-music hall crones, must rescue her cyclist grandson after he is kidnapped by French mobsters during the Tour de France. Told virtually without any dialogue, director Sylvian Chomet's visionary adult cartoon, though laced with risque images, is a feast for the eyes, alternating between unhinged humor and tenderheartedness, while using simple pantomime to achieve emotional nuance rarely attained in live-action fare. Stylized violence, fleeting cartoon nudity and minimal mildly crude humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
