Top Movies of the Decade #34

34. The Triplets of Belleville

This nearly wordless, imaginatively animated tale of a grandmother’s love simply hasn’t been seen by enough people.  As much as I love the Pixar movies (and I do, I really do) and the strides in animation they’ve represented over the past decade, the odd angles, weird colors and strange relationships between spacees of “Belleville”‘s animation are charming, nostalgic, and often used to present delightful visual gags.  This movie feels like it could’ve been made fifty years ago but is still fresh, engaging, and lovable today.  If you haven’t seen it (and seems like almost nobody I talk to has), move it to the top of your Netflix queue.  You’re in for a treat.
