Un Monstre à Paris / a Monster in Paris by Eric Bergeron (France, 2011, 90 min.)

In English.

Vanessa Paradis is Lucille, the lead cabaret attraction, in this animated Paris of 1910. La Seine is flooding the streets of the City of Lights, while a mysterious monster is on the loose.

Éric Bergeron, director of The Road to Eldorado and Shark Tale, came back to France to produce this spirited musical animated feature sets in his hometown. This tale of two beautiful outcasts meeting and empowering each-other is ageless. Vanessa Paradis who sings alongside Sean Lennon, as Francoeur the giant flee, to charm younger and older audience. The mix of musical numbers with hints of classical gothic tales and an unmistakable Parisian flair creates an unexpected animated adventure. 

“The film has something of Hugo's Hunchback of Notre Dame, and indeed King Kong, but has an eccentric style of its own” – the Guardian
