Un Monstre a Paris

It has been a little while since my last update. I had finals this week, so I made sure I got those done first. 

Anyway, I found an excellent French animated film recently called, "Un Monstre a Paris" (A Monster in Paris). They have an English version of it as well, which is the one that I watched first. It is not very well known here in the US and hasn't seen a theatrical release either. I watched it with my 4 year old son, and he loves it as well. It is one of those Pixar type movies, not only in animation style, but that it appeals to both adults and children. It is definitely worth your time to try to find this film. I am not sure you could even find it in a retail store here in the US, so you may need to do some searching online. (If you can't find a hard copy of it click here to download)
                                             Here is one of the songs from the French version. 

The film follows two Parisians who make a little trouble in a scientist's lab while he is away. This leads to the accidental creation of a seven foot tall beast that causes an uproar throughout Paris. In any case, if you are looking for something different to watch with the family, or even all by your forever alonesome, check out this movie.
