From Paper to Pixels: Les triplettes de Belleville

I chose to write an argumentative 6 page paper on the film Triplets of Belleville for one of my classes. If you have seen this film you may understand the current predicament I am faced with; there is absolutely no negative criticism i can provide this film with. Everything from the technical side of traditional animation, to the mixture of a 3D analog aspect is incredibly executed with a very unique style. Sylvain Chomet (director) has worked in traditional animation for quite sometime now, but this film is by far his oracular masterpiece. He creates a world so erratic that there is absolutely no need for dialogue or even a coherent story structure. I highly suggest you watch a copy of this film, it will* change your life. I posted a small video of the best quality i could find online of one of my favorite scenes. If you decide to rent/buy it the DVD’s special features give you about a 30 minute commentary on the making of which is pretty incredible.
