Les Triplettes de Belleville (5 pm)

(France – 80mn – Animation – Sylvain Chomet )

Madame de Souza is worried about her young nephew, Champion. Nothing interests him and he’s bored to death. One day, she discovers a pile of photos of the Tour de France and various cycling champions that he’s been hiding. She then buys him a bike and gets him training to be the future winner of the cycling race. It’s a bad move, for her nephew becomes the prey of the French mafia. They kidnap him and put him to work in illegal casinos where virtual races are run for high stakes. Madame de Souza hits the road, searching for her nephew, hoping to free him from the bad guys’ clutches. This burlesque thriller takes us on Madame de Souza’s hair-raising search for her nephew through Paris’ Belleville neighborhood and an imaginary North American city. Laughter and tears are guaranteed.

L’Illusionniste (6:30 pm)

(France – 80mn – Animation – Sylvain Chomet )

At the end of the 1950’s, a revolution is shaking up the music hall universe: the spectacular success of rock’n’roll music, whose young stars draw in crowds., while traditional acts – acrobats, jugglers, ventriloquists – are seen as old fashioned. Our hero, the illusionist, is only too aware that he is now part of an endangered category of artists. As job offers dry up, he is forced to leave the great theatres of Paris and pack up his doves and his rabbit to try his luck in London… Based on an original screenplay by Jacques Tati, The Illusionist won the César of the best animated film in 2011.
