The Triplets of Belleville

Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville
Conducted by Benoît Charest

Adelaide Premiere

  • About

    In 2003, this imaginative French feature swept the globe, raking up dozens of awards and nominations - not to mention the hearts of countless admirers - along the way. As there is next to no dialogue in the film, other than some pretty jazzy singing, a huge part of its success lay in the Oscar-nominated score by Benoît Charest, which grabbed audiences by the ears and dragged them into the streets of 1920s Paris and New York.

    Now Benoît is back. With Le Terrible Orchestre de Belleville he recreates live his brilliant score as the film is beamed onto the big screen. Saddle up for the misadventures of a kidnapped Tour de France cyclist, his would-be rescuer grandmother, and the titular trio of larger-than-life divas, all accompanied by surreal comedy and the swingin’ speakeasy sounds of un orchestre sans pareil.
