Paris, Paris

Just in time for Tour de France coming to Denmark now. Nearly 10 years ago this movie not to be confused with the LEGO toys made an revolution in animation, and showed cartoons is also for the mature art crowd too. Bicycle riders are missing, as a woman and three elder people are out to solve the mystery. There is chases, fun, bizarre moments and vintage music too so here is something for all. This movie like Amelie is coming into an Tour de France fan zone with all it´s loud madness that lasts for days non stop. So see this on a big TV with big speakers. In consumerism of course Tour de France and Giro D´Italia, and in drugs try to explain your kids what doping is.

Educational value
Too much violence

Gorgeaus, undubitably French

It is one of my favorite movies of all time because of the animation and the MUSIC. My god, the MUSIC makes this movie worth watching by itself. That said, the whole movie is mesmerizing. Watch with no expectations or background. I was smitten.
