ABSTRACT
One of the most imaginative films of 2003 "The Triplets of Belleville" has risen from the ashes of what some people have bemoaned to be a dying art, that is, 2D feature animation. By taking advantage of at least one unique quality of 2D animation, the freedom to exaggerate, Sylvain Chomet's film sets a new standard for hand-drawn storytelling. In what other medium would you find three old, impoverished, yet stylish cabaret singers accompanying themselves with sounds made with a vacuum cleaner, crumpling newspaper and refrigerator racks. The award-winning film, which has almost no dialogue, leaves reviewers gasping for words. INSET: An interview with Sylvain Chomet.
