This Fantastic Animated Film Will Take You On A Bizarro Tour De France

The Tour de France has kicked off, which means tonight is the perfect time to snuggle up on the sofa and watch The Triplets of Belleville. The animated feature follows a badass little granny (with a limp and hint of mustache) as she tracks down her cyclist grandson who's been kidnapped by the French mafia.

There's also the eponymous trio of singing sisters and a portly dog. Yes, it's strange and yes, it's fantastic.

Everything about this movie is great. The visuals are like nothing that's come before or after, as evidenced by the well-deserved Academy Award in 2003 when it came out; there's very little dialogue but the score and soundtrack is standalone wonderful (and heyo, also Academy Award-winning); plus the story is weird and funny and unsettling and heartwarming and I just think you are going to love it.
