A wacky inventor, his camera crazy best friend and a madcap monkey make a BIG mistake when let loose in the Professor s laboratory! With lotions and potions spilling everywhere, the troublesome trio accidentally create Franc, a musical talent of monstrous proportions. With the help of the beautiful but feisty singer Lucille, the team are on a mission to protect their new friend from the ghastly wannabe Mayor, Commissioner Maynott, who has a plan to increase his popularity by capturing Franc and revealing him to be a scary monster to the people of Paris. Directed by Bibo Bergeron (Shark Tale) with a voice cast including Vanessa Paradis and Sean Lennon, A MONSTER IN PARIS is fantastic fun for all the family.
A fun, lively animated feature, A Monster In Paris isn’t the first movie of its ilk to question who is a monster and who is a man, but it’s an enjoyable one nonetheless. Set in Paris in 1910, the key characters are investor Raoul and projectionist Emile, along with the monster of the film’s title. At first, the hunt for said monster is a conventional one, and equally inevitably, he’s far from the beast that he originally appears. That doesn’t quell the desire of the chief of police to catch him, though, and a fairly conventional story slots into place from there.
Yet it’s a well told one. There are welcome quirks to A Monster In Paris that give it some character of its own, and the Paris locations are wonderfully animated, too. Inevitably, there are comparisons, and fair ones, to be drawn with The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, and A Monster In Paris is no equal to, for example, Disney’s telling of that story. But still, it’s a funny, breezy and entertaining film, tailored well to a young audience. --Jon Foster

The French always have a different slant on films and it was a joy to see an animation with great depth and character that veered away from the old Hollywood formula and in truth, put much of what the American market has to produce, in the shade.
Whilst the film is initially slow to pick up the story, it soon moves at a good pace when the 'monster' (a giant singing flea) comes to life.
The flea is without doubt the star of the film. His magnificent stature and fabulous clothes make him a striking figure. His beautiful singing voice is supplied by the sweetly toned Sean Lennon.
The dance routines between the flea and the female lead are pure joy and the chase scenes are rivetting.
The soundtrack is fabulous and possibly the real selling point behind this film - the CD/download will be well worth investigating.
And finally, the moral behind the film is strong. Without giving much away, the viewer has to ask him/herself, who is the REAL monster of Paris?
All in all, this is a terrific film which pleased both my 11 year old daughter and I on different levels.
I adore Paris and it made it even better that this film is set around this beautiful city in the 1910's.
I also have to say I fell in love with the 'monster' - this film is perfect if you are looking for something to watch with kids.
A perfect film with a really positive theme that should have got alot more praise and advertising than it did, I can't wait to watch it again.
