Has anyone seen the commercials for this movie or has anyone SEEN it? It looks sooo weird, really abstract and I'm terribly curious.

“The film has been one of the most popular in the entire (Cannes) festival. Told without dialogue but with lots of music and sound effects, it manages to create emotion as well as humor.”
-Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES

“a hallucinatory amalgam of Paris and New York, as unreal in its way as Dogville, and Mr. Chomet indulges some playful anti-Americanism of his own. The city's residents are mostly obese, toothy hamburger eaters. It is a wild, nostalgic tribute to an old, cherished idea of France, with raucous music-hall tunes on the soundtrack (the triplets are an ancient trio of cabaret singers), and the national mania for bicycle racing at its heart. The animation, with elongated, slightly grotesque figures set against gray and sepia ink-washed backgrounds, owes a lot to old French and Belgian comic strips And the odd, sometimes disturbing story — a grandmother, aided by the triplets and her loyal, overweight dog, tries to rescue her cyclist grandson, who has been kidnapped by gangsters — is a far cry from either Walt Disney or Japanese anime. But "Les Triplettes," with its affirmation of French ingenuity, French history and French idiosyncrasy, has been, for the local public if not for the critics, the sensation of the festival.”
-A.O. Scott, NEW YORK TIMES

I saw this movie and loved it. It was just so visually interesting and i loved that the story was conveyed with hardly any dialogue. Really loved it.

I saw a teaser for it this morning when I was getting ready for school and I got goosebumps!
"The stage is where I live and come alive and act out all the things that go on in my life. It's not just what I do for a living, it's my shrink and my love affair. No one in my life has ever or ever will kiss me on the mouth like this lover called my relationship with my performance."

i just saw it. the movie is.....different. everything is in french, though there are only two lines spoken total, and those are in english. its a touching story, with insanely good music. its hilarious, touching, and sad. and weird. its just so hard to describe. if anything, go to see it for the dog. he just steals the show. the images are AMAZING!! the scene transitions are incredible and startling. my mom hated it, but i am ecstatic about it. and, being a latin geek, i love that the motto "In Vino Veritas" (truth in wine) is printed throughout. it takes a lot of stabs at americans, so watch closely to catch them all! go see it!!!! its worth it!!!

I saw this movie last week and absolutely loved it. The music at the begining was a little bit creepy. But I loved the fact how there was no dialogue in the whole movie. It was either sounds or music in the background, and really relied on the music and animation to bring out the story.

I enjoyed it too. Although there was a father and his daughter sitting next to me. It's really not a movie that children can appreciate. The father was explaining everything to the daughter.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

I hate when that happens. It's not like there was any speaking to promote the child to ask "What did they say?" That is the worst, especially when people say it after every line in a movie/play.

It's a really brilliant piece of theatricality. The story is great, the animation is some of the most remarkable I have seen so far...a great mix of artistic styles. The Sountrack is really wonderful, also - we bought it the day we saw the film and still have it in our CD player. See it on the big screen if you can - don't wait to rent it, because I believe it will lose something on a small screen - but its definitely what my partner and I refer to as "an owner"...meaning we must own a copy when it is released on DVD.
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!
