the Triplets of Belleville is about an elderly woman searching for her son who was kidnapped in the middle of a Tour de France race. It’s largely free of dialogue, but the sound effects and such are wonderful. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature—it lost to Finding Nemo.
A Cat in Paris is about a young girl and her cat who discover mysteries in the course of one night. It was also nominated for an Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Rango.
Persepolis is based on an autobiographical graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi about her early life in Iran. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, but it lost to Ratatouille.
the Illusionist is about an aging magician and an imaginative young girl who form a father/daughter relationship. It was also nominated for a Best Animation Oscar, but lost to Toy Story 3.
The Rabbi’s Cat is a story about a cat who swallows a parrot and gains the ability to speak like a human. It is set in 1920’s Algeria.
Ernest & Celestine is the adorable story about a big bear and a little mouse who forge an unlikely friendship. It was also nominated for an Oscar in Best Animated Picture, but lost to Frozen.
Kirikou and the Sorceress is a story inspired by West African folklore that tells the story of Kirikou, a boy who was born with the ability to walk and talk, who saves his people from an evil witch. The film was popular enough to spawn sequels and a stage adaptation.
A Monster in Paris is a 3D animated musical film that is reaaaaalllly loosely based on the Phantom of the Opera. It’s set in 1910 and is about, surprisingly, a monster that lives in Paris, and his love for a young singer.
The King and the Mockingbird is an 80’s film about a cruel king titled Charles V + III = VIII + VIII = XVI, who is obsessed with a young shepherdess, and whose attempts to capture the young girl are thwarted by a mockingbird whose wife the King had previously killed.
Those are probably the most famous of the feature length animated films.
But the animated short films are just as glorious. Here’s a compilation of a bunch of short films and I can link you to others as well.
Sorry for the long answer but I just really love French animation.
Reblogging over here. French animation tends to do better with diversity than Disney does, hahaha.
wait but i hate how no one actually talks about this. the man in that sauna is the only adult there. he was the father to that family. but no, we all knew that the shop owner was the father of that family because he said “yoohoo family”, referencing them as his family. but no one pays attention to this. guys, frozen had a gay couple. with a family. and there were so many amazing things about this movie that no one talks about ho frozen openly promoted gay marriage and gay families. i know that we argue a lot on tumblr, but i think we can all agree that this movie is the best thing that has ever happened to disney.
is that what you think “openly promoting gay families” is
like. i mean. even so, there’s an adult woman in there who could easily be used to diffuse any of that shit.
Okay, let’s hear this from Disney’s actual statement about LGBT representation and how this is totally what was presented on the screen.
But they wouldn’t openly ANNOUNCE that kind of thing right? It’s up to interpretation right? I mean, it’s not like OTHER companies have set out to make sure that everyone knows their stance on LGBT matters-
But HEEEEEEY good for you, Disney, for featuring two seconds of a character that MIGHT be interpreted as gay despite the fact that there is no evidence clearly stating so and that it could easily be disproved by that fact that the female could very well be the man’s wife.
TAKING SOME REAL RISKS HERE.
And here we have the Aoba in his natural habitat― the crotch of another man.
