(France/Belgium/2003—directed by Sylvain Chomet)

Champion is a lonely little boy. Noticing that the lad is never happier than on a bicycle, his loving grandmother, Madame Souza, puts him through a rigorous training process. As years go by and Champion becomes worthy of his name, he is ready to enter the world-famous cycling race, the Tour de France. But no sooner does it begin when two mysterious men in black kidnap Champion, leaving it up to the determined Madame Souza and her faithful dog Bruno to rescue him. Their quest takes them across the ocean to a giant megalopolis called Belleville where they encounter the renowned "Triplets," three eccentric female music-hall stars from the ‘30s who take Madame Souza and Bruno under their wing. Thanks to Bruno's brilliant sense of smell, the brave duo are soon on to Champion's trail - but will they succeed in beating the devilish plans of the evil French mafia? English language version (78 min.)
