'''''Les Triplettes de Belleville''''', a.k.a. '''''The Triplets of Belleville''''' or '''''Belleville Rendez-vous''''', is a 2003 French animated film by animator and writer Creator/SylvainChomet. For all its quirky twists and turns, it ultimately becomes an introspective character study rather than simply a piece of popular entertainment. It's also tied together by some truly fantastic jazz and period-inspired music by Benoît Charest and features almost no dialogue.

* TheOnlyOne: Souza (and Bruno) set off to save Champion herself. No mention is made if PoliceAreUseless - they aren't even brought up.

* TakeThat: The scene which shows the run-down house where the Triplettes have to live also shows for a few seconds a toilet clearly not flushed [[spoiler:- the feces form the famous Mickey Mouse head.]]

* {{Badass Grand|pa}}ma: Madame Souza is a tiny, club-footed old woman who is persistent enough to follow an ocean liner across the entire Atlantic in a ''foot-pedalled boat'', at night, during a huge storm at sea, [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic to the accompaniment of Mozart's "Mass in C Minor - Kyrie"]]. She kicks over a car too. The eponymous Triplets are no slouches either; for elderly vaudeville performers, they have surprising proficiency with explosives.

* {{Leitmotif}}: The Bach song played on television that inspires Madame Souza to cheer up a despondent Champion by teaching him to play the piano accompanies his misfortune again when the French Mafia starts kidnapping cyclists, and later, Madame Souza switches from playing Belleville Rendez-vous for the Triplets to the same song, likely implying that she explains her situation and troubles to them offscreen.
