Review

Review Text With melodies that are both snappy and quaint, and lyrics "en Francais," this inspired soundtrack of jazz tunes composed by French-Canadian Benoit Charest harkens back to a bygone era. In the film, three cartoon crooners--elderly sisters--remember their heyday performing at Paris nightclubs in the 1930s. Musical by nature, the women now compose with household objects. Their "instruments" consist of a crackly newspaper, a metal grill from the refrigerator, and a wheezing Hoover vacuum cleaner. When the triplets meet Madame Souza, an old lady whose nephew competed in the Tour de France, she joins their jam, playing a bicycle wheel. These odd instruments provide for lots of musical invention, and Charest takes advantage of that. The theme song, "Belleville Rendez-Vous," is classic swing with a catchy refrain. Another tune, "Tour De France," is an accordian ditty backing an announcer who reports the progress of the race. Charest adds further innovation with a pop ballad called "Attila Marcel," a piano piece called "Jazzy Bach," and the surfer song "Pa Pa Pa Palavas." There's even a quick hidden track at the very end--a bonus to careful listeners, and a funny memory for those who have seen the movie.
