|The film is THE TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE. A good part of the movie follows a bicycle racer as he trains and competes in the Tour de France. It is currently playing in Los Angeles. I don't know where else. Be forewarned, however. Though rich and rewarding, the film is one of the strangest I've ever laid eyes upon. It is French. It is animated.|

|I've heard it's very charming. I'm hoping to take my little niece when it comes out in Chicagoland.

|Depending on how old your niece is, or how liberal you are life-style wise, the movie might not be suitable for her. There's some cartoon nudity (though it's very funny and only the tiniest bit sexual). There's a scene in a brothel. The film might be too scary and intense. I believe it's rated PG-13.|
|it got great reviews on NPR...||_rt_|

|but they also said it is very strange.
oh, and for those of you who are subtitle phobic, they say there is really very little dialogue.
rt - can't wait till it comes to my neck of the woods
