I just saw the new animated movie "Triplets of Bellevue".
The movie is based on a young boy that grows up to race in the Tour de
France.
It is a comedy and is outstanding. One of the best cycling films to come out
in a long time.

Where is it playing? Just on the coast, or will it make it to "flyover"
country?

It's a hilarious film - beautifully observed characters. The dog is wonderful -
especially the way it chews toffee, gets a phobis of trains and of frogs. The
shell-shocked, war-wounded frogs are a must - and you may well be put off
pop-corn for life ;-) Myonly criticism is the car chase is a tad too long. Did
you wait until the very end of the credits?? If you didn't you missed a truly
funny moment. Over in the UK the film goes by the name of Belleville
Rendez-vous. No-one can true a wheel as well as Madame Sousza ;-)

Let me say this about the film - while it was definitely interesting, it is
about as much a bicycle movie as was Harold and Maud.

There is essentially no speach so the fact that it is mostly in French makes
no difference. The version I saw was "dubbed" which means that TWO sentences
were in English.

It is a cartoon with very stylized characterizations and some of them are
shockingly accurate such as the bicyclists laying along the road gasping
like fish out of the water.

Surely the producer/director was a bicycle racing fan from the late 50's or
so.

I was glad to go see it but I wouldn't see it a second time.

But "Harold and Maude" had a mid-sixties Jaguar XKE hearse. You don't
see that every day, do ya?

=v= How many movies can boast the following:

o Someone finding his/her true calling, liberty, joy,
and (*ahem!*) optimal physique with a bicycle?

o Someone truing a wheel at the dinner table?

o A bicycle-powered record player?

o The absolute pinnacle of computer-generated imaging, finally
being used for the noblest purpose possible: animating the
movements of bicycles?

o Le Tour?

o A butcher's shop window display featuring a moving
stuffed pig on a bicycle with tires made from links
of sausages?

o A snippet from Jacques Tati's _Jour_de_Fête_?

=v= I saw it twice, each time surrounded by bike freeeks. :^)

=v= I love movies where trees get saved and cars get smashed.
But that's just me. :^)

My wife went and saw it last night (and quite enjoyed it). One comment
she made was that there were a number of things in the films she would
not have understand or found amusing a couple years ago. i.e. Before I
would babble on endlessly about bicycle things to her.

Then don't post like that and maybe you'll find some friends who aren't
animated cartoons. And since when did Henry go out with you?
