Time for a follow-up to the extraordinary animated film Belleville Rendez-vouz, this time featuring a geeky Brit hero with Paul Weller-style sideburns?

Below, the trailer for the film, called  Les Triplettes de Belleville when first released (2003) in France:

    you might like the song done by mathieu chedid, known as M, that’s based on the triplets of belleville. it’s got a real swinging rhythm

  2. Jim Denham said,

    Thanks Les, but I couldn’t listen to it, or watch it, as “this video contains content from EMI, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.”

  3. Rosie said,

    Henry V was on the telly last night – that can’t have been a coincidence. Heroic English deeds in France. . .

    Wiggo also hates tory scum as well

  5. Robin Carmody said,

    Am I the only person for whom the victory is slightly tainted by the Europhobia pushed for years by its (partial) bankrollers? Victory in continental Europe shouldn’t be an excuse for hatred of / distance from continental Europe.
