This Oscar-nominated animated film is an exciting antipode to the easy predictability of mainstream American cartoons. This quirky, nearly silent comedy from France concerns a tenacious granny, a fat dog and a morose grandson who has been kidnapped during the famed Tour de France bicycle race by some evil French mobsters. (You heard me.) What follows is a wondrous, surprise-filled chase scene that borrows equal elements of Buster Keaton, Jacques Tati and Blue Man Group. 78 minutes PG-13.
