M Belleville Rendez – Vous

  • Pin it

You already know I’m an openly declared fan of animation movies. Also, a small detail: my husband loves European movies. Take the two and you’ve got “Les Triplettes De Belleville”.

I haven’t had the pleasure yet (it’s on the loooon waiting list), but there’s a tiny piece of music from that very animation movie haunting me high and low: M (Matthieu Chedid) Belleville Rendez vous. I hope you had a wonderful week, because I did! With you! Thank your for your great comments, wishing you the most amazing weekend yet, enjoy M’s Triplettes de Belleville! (more info right after the jump!)

Because I can’t bring on the spoilers, especially for those who, like me, haven’t had the pleasure. The animated story is told using not so much words but especially through song and pantomime. The Triplets of Belleville is actually a co-production (France, Uk, Belgium, Canada) from 2003 and was internationally awarded or acknowledged (from which, a special recognition went to the above song).

They say you’d see elements from Josephine Baker, Fred Astaire, Django Reinhard but also anti-Disney fragments here and there. (which makes it really odd to bring it up since today, December 5, Walt Disney was born (1901). I wish you’d share your feelings about The triplets if you have seen it (without spoiling the actual plot) and try to convince me to give in to it. If it’s worth it. (you can read more about the Triplets here and here)

Oh I loved it! Just go and see it!
I was so angry yesterday at Microsoft, Google, Yahoo and whoever IT fools more: I couldn’t get on Stylefrizz! At last it worked very sloooooooow….and I was able to post….but I couldn’t watch this, which I loved too….haaaaaaa, at last….don’t you just loved the music?No one? Only silly me?
I had a nice Sinterklaas weekend. What’s Sinterklaas? Google.:P No, just kidding of course, Dutch tradition. So up to Christmas then. Thanks Kpriss as always.

P.S. Americans, also English by the way, you should pay more attention to Europe’s art. Especially films. There’s more to that continent than the Paris fashion weeks!
