The Triplets of Belleville

I like to catch up on Oscar-nominated films, and while The Triplets of Belleville didn't stand a chance against powerhouse Finding Nemo, I had been wanting to see it anyway. Hooray for Netflix!
Triplets was really, really odd, but in a good way. I don't think I can give an accurate synopsis, but let's just say there are bikes, triplets, frogs, a kidnapping, trains, evil henchmen, and a fat dog. One of the things that was super sweet about Triplets was the minimal dialogue. It wasn't a dialogue-driven movie, like Nemo, but rather picture-driven. Remember those picture books you used to read when you were a kid, and they didn't have any words but the pictures told you everything you needed to know? The Triplets of Belleville is just like that. The music is cool, the pictures are cool, but I didn't LOVE it. I liked the minimal dialogue, but I was confused a lot, and kept waiting for the action. Maybe it's a French thing.
