Paris, 1910. Emile, a shy movie projectionist, and Raoul, a colorful inventor, find themselves embarked on the hunt for a monster terrorizing citizens. They join forces with Lucille, the big-hearted star of the Rare Bird cabaret, an eccentric scientist and his irascible monkey to save the monster, who turns out to be an over-sized but harmless flea, from the city's ruthlessly ambitious police chief.Written by

When Lucille tries to disguise Fracoeur's head with several hats and wigs in her dressing room, the one that looks like a Dracula hairdo resembles the hair style that M or Matthieu Chedid -the voice and singer for Francoeur- uses in his real on-stage persona. See more »
Although the story is set in 1910, the Mayor of Paris is featured. The office of Mayor of Paris was suppressed in 1871, after the 'Commune', and was not restored until 1977. See more »
Tuneful kids romp, yes kids, maybe kids should review it.
OK. First and foremost it's a kids film. On the whole all kids films are reviewed by adults on IMDb and therefore shouldn't be reviewed like Saving Private Ryan or the Green Mile. My 3 and 5 year old enjoyed the film, the characters and the music and came out smiling afterwards. Not as good as other children's films such as The Incredibles or Finding Nemo (larger budget I imagine), but certainly in the ballpark of Despicable Me or Megamind. Either way, lovely animation of Paris, interesting storyline, and for me it gave the adults enough to keep watching, or is that because I had a crush on Vanessa Paradis when I was 14?
