A Monster In Paris (Un Monstre à Paris) is a French animated film directed by Eric "Bibo"Bergeron, with music by Matthieu Chedid, aka -M-.During the Great Flood of 1910, Emile, a shy movie projectionist, and Raoul, a colorful inventor, find themselves embarked on the hunt for a monster terrorizing the citizens of Paris. However, the monster takes refuge with a beautiful, kind-hearted singer named Lucille and is revealed to be actually quite harmless. Now all of them must continue to protect the monster, Francœur, from the chief of police who's out to kill him.
Belligerent Sexual Tension: Raoul towards Lucille. They're described as bickering non-stop since childhood. And even though they still do, it's obvious Raoul has a thing for her. It's revealed that Lucille feels the same at the end.
Funny Background Event: During the scene where Victor Maynott and Inspector Pate are talking with each other about the current flood and how to take care of it, all the while you can see Albert fruitlessly struggling to uncork the bottle of wine he's brought for the pair, from using his teeth to holding it with his feet, until finally he manages to get it off after the word 'pop'.
Never Trust a Trailer: The American trailer for the movie led many to believe that Francœur and Lucille would end up romantically involved, a la Beauty and the Beast, with Raoul playing the part of Gaston. Of course none of this is true.
Plot Allergy: Raoul's feather allergy gets him in trouble several times, particularly embarrassing Lucille while she's in her angel costume, and triggering a Sneeze of Doom that almost causes him and Lucille to fall off the Eiffel Tower.
The Stinger: Two, one before and one after the credits.
Talking Animal: Charles is an interesting variation. He can't talk, but circumvents this by writing on cards. And he must be writing really fast. (That or they were all written beforehand.) Likewise, Francœur is incapable of speech (unless he's singing).
Talking with Signs: Charles is trained to communicate through messages written out in cards.
