Les Triplettes des Belvilles (The Triplettes of Belleville)
Director: Sylvain Chomet
Cast: Beatrice Bonifassi, Lina Boudreau, Michele Caucheteux, Jean-Claude Donda

A delightfully idiosyncratic French animation about an old lady and her fat dog whose quest to find her grandson (who was kidnapped during Tour de France) takes them to the new world. The story is funny, bizarre and dialogue-free, the characters wonderfully wacky and French, and the overall look and feel of the animation like nothing else out there.
