A MONSTER IN PARIS (Theatrical Release France 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.1|5.0 Stars ììì

A Monster in Paris—an intriguing, offbeat French animated film—features an oversized flea with a terrific singing voice. The downside of the film is that it plays at the edge of a message movie rather than an entertainment piece and would appeal to the adult more than the child.

Storyline

Parisian businessmen become involved with a scientist who mixes potions to turn a flea into a 6-foot mutation. A female musical entertainer includes him in her act due to his musical abilities.

Additional Thanks

Good Work for Director Bibo Bergeron. Thank you to Executive Producers Nadia Khamlichi, Adrian Politowski, and Gilles Waterkeyn for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Francoeur (Matthieu Chedid), Lucille (Vanessa Paradis), Raoul (Gad Elmaleh), Madame Carlotta (Julie Ferrier), and Emile (Sébastien Desjours).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The film lacks imagination.
