Writer/director Sylvain Chomet uses animation to tell the fanciful tale of Champion, a lonely little boy who is never happier than on a bicycle. His grandmother, Madame Souza, puts him through a rigorous training process and soon the boy enters the world-famous Tour de France. When two mysterious men kidnap Champion during the tour, Madame Souza and her dog Bruno set out to rescue him. Their long journey leads to the renowned "Triplets of Belleville," three eccentric female music-hall stars from the '30s who agree to help recover the boy. Official Web Site
