Beginning in the 1980s, cinema reeled from the one-two punch of the final, complete corporatization of the USA, and the "blockbuster" mentality that "Star Wars" implanted into the cocaine addled brains of development executives. Gone was the vital, independent cinema of the '60s and '70s, replaced by spreadsheets, bloated budgets, and high concept effects films. "Intelligence," "art," and "challenging" were now pejoratives, replaced by lowest common denominator thinking designed to part rubes from their box-office dollars in the laziest manner possible.
Still, in spite of the long odds against them, the occasional film was able to sneak through and show thought, wit, and creativity. Sadly, most of these films were from countries outside the USA.

In this original German release poster, the artist has caught the film perfectly. I find most of the posters, particularly those from the US, to be a trifle insufferable.
|TRIPLETS OF BELLEVILLE (2003) - Sylvain Chomet's stupendous achievement in animation, harkens back to such classics as "Allegro
non troppo" or even "Fantasia." The simple tale of a grandmere's search for her kidnapped cyclist grandson, it features beautiful artwork, classic
villains, an Academy Award nominated song, and the most delightful dog ever put on screen. Worth seeking out.
