I believe Sylvain Chomet’s animated feature is a Belgian production, but it’s very French in tone and characterization. The film has to do with a champion cyclist, his grandma and their dog. When the cyclist is kidnapped by the French mafia, grandma and pup (both indomitable) must attempt his rescue with the aid of the titular triplets. This film is visually thrilling, funny, weird and inventive. I would recommend seeing it on a big screen if you can.
