Belleville Rendez-Vous

This is a charming French animation I watched last night.  If you've not heard of it, it tells the story of a young boy who becomes a Tour de France rider, gets kidnapped by the Mafia and eventually rescued by his grandmother and ever loyal dog Bruno (who in some ways is very badly treated). The story is told entirely visually with very little speech (part English, part French - though I didn't bother with the optional subtitles on the DVD).  The protagonists are very well fleshed out, with their visual look emphasising their character. The art style is beautiful, and the direction sublime, with several laugh out loud moments. I think I'll watch this one again in the near future.
