Nothing like a child’s horror to cheer you up. It’s 1910 Paris, a bungling delivery man and his friend create a monster accidentally from a flea, but the over-sized flea has talent for music which is as famous as his unjust monster reputation.

Monster in Paris takes a lot of chances with the narrative and pacing that larger studios wouldn’t attempt. The computer animation is excellently done, cute and stylistic. Vanessa Paradis is note worthy bringing Lucille to life wonderfully. It’s darker parts are reminiscent of Tim Burton’s outings, that said, it’s fresh Parisian fun, with catchy songs, and a witty script to match.

It’s slightly off beat and doesn’t dot all the i’s and cross the t’s story wise but this is what makes it so appealing.
